PARENTS & GRANDPARENTS


In the April 1994 paper, "The Influence of Grandparents and Stepgrandparents on Grandchildren," Dr. Laura DeHaan and Dr. Sean Brotherson from the North Dakota State University wrote,
"Grandparents and stepgrandparents influence their grandchildren both directly and indirectly. Direct influences come from face-to-face interaction, and indirect influences are realized through a third party... It's interesting to note the variety of terms used to refer to the many roles grandparents or stepgrandparents play. For example:

♦ Stress buffer ♦ Watchdog ♦ Arbitrator ♦ Roots/family historian ♦ Supporter

... The intergenerational contact reflects a high value for family connection. Grandchildren exposed to such contact are less fearful of old age and the elderly. They feel more connected to their families."

But we already know this, don't we? Our grandparents play an important, yet hugely underrated role in our psychological development. In a sense, they provide the secondary nurturing element in our childhood.

Of course, this in no way takes anything away from our parents. The fundamental principles governing our lives, emotional quotient, spiritual and emotional makeup - in fact, just about every observable quality of our being are shaped by our parents (or in their absence, other available role models).
