Keys for Kids

Parent Minute

Love them, spoil them, and send them home.

Posted on 1/14/2016 by Greg Yoder

Are you a grandparent? I am. The great thing about being a grandparent is you can do all the things you ever WANTED to do as a parent—give them candy, eat dessert first, and let them stay up late. It's like a sleepover with financially-dependent cool people you love. We spoil our grandkids with toys, sweets, and sometimes even cash, until Mom and Dad rain on our parade. But, if you're a grandparent who's raising your grandkids, that's a WHOLE different story. You're really their parent. There are more of you than ever before for MANY reasons. My advice? Find time to be those fun grandparents. When they're older, they'll respect you for your sacrifice—but remember you for your love.

Suggested Reading: Proverbs 17:6, Psalm 103:17
