Grandparents Shaping A New Generation

Grandparents Shaping A New Generation

Maree / Jul 20, 2021

Well none of us will be surprised by the recent findings of a major study conducted by Alan Newman Research. The study found that the vast majority of grandparents play a very (59%) or somewhat (30%) important role in the lives of their grandchildren.

The Grandparents who were interviewed saw their role as shapers of another generation. Specifically, grandparents mentioned the importance of passing on values, an understanding of heritage and helping their grandchildren develop morally and spiritually.

Whilst some grandparents were hindered by the tyranny of distance, the study found that those grandparents were still able to share a great deal with their grandkids via FaceTime and Zoom chats.
