As the saying goes — ‘Old is Gold’, let’s accept and appreciate our loved ones in their golden years by celebrating Grandparents’ Day on September 11.

Grandparents are the most understanding and loving people in the world and we can never underestimate their importance and influence on our current generation. Though ideologies and trends may be far apart, our grandparents speak the most common language, the language of ‘love’, and are thus often able to successfully bridge the generation gap between themselves and their grandchildren.

Grandparents set examples as they have years of parenting experience. Our system provides us with an umpteen number of courses to develop our skills and knowledge, however, one of the most important callings in life is left to trial and error. Here, none other than our dear grandparents are fully capable of being the guiding star during challenging family situations with years of wisdom to their credit.
