Every Child Should Have a Grandparent
Have you ever noticed that often parents who did not know how to be good parents change when they become Grandparents? Mark Gungor contributed to Susanne M. Alexander’s book, “All-in-One Marriage Prep” which is a collection of tips and wisdom by 75 relationship experts. His contribution advocates marrying young.
He warns, “There is an additional threat when people wait so long for marriage and children: the elimination of the role of grandparents. These people who love their grandcildren unconditionally and whose age, wisdom, and financial resources play a key role–in some cases, the key role–as stabilizers in those children’s lives.
Our friends’ grandchildren were graduating high school about the time we had our first grandchild.These people would look at me sympathetically and say, “You don’t know what you are missing.” I would say, “You don’t miss what you don’t have.”
We now have two wonderful granddaughters and I do know what I was missing.
