Dr. Arthur Kornhaber, author of The Grandparent Guide says grandchildren and their grandparents usually “have an adoration and unconditional love and joy in one another’s existence.”
Shannon Dean in an article about smart parenting mentions that “grandparents reap numerous benefits from a close relationship with their grandchildren. The desire to be present as a child grows has encouraged many grandparents to remain active, to educate themselves on issues important to children and to fiercely protect their own health.”
"Children on their side, with involved grandparents learn that they can love and depend upon someone other than their parents" says S. Dean.
Susan Bosak, the author of “How to Build the Grandma Connection,” says that children who have strong ties with involved, caring grandparents develop higher self-esteem, better emotional and social skills including an ability to withstand peer pressure and enhanced academic performance.
