    Grandparents' House The car ride to my grandparents' house seemed to take half a day even though it was only a twenty-minute drive to Cedaredge. Although the back road over Redlands Mesa was a twisty tourney road, it drug on like a boring documentary. When the car finally pulled into the driveway of the long, white house with a neatly kept green lawn, I knew it was going to be a great day of fun, relaxation, and great food. As I walked around to the back door, my eyes took in the beauty of the

    I would like to mention a personal story which involves my own paternal grandparents. Unlike most love stories where you find two people attracted to each other at first sight, going all romantic and gooey and realizing they are meant for each other, this one is a little different. There were no sparks flying, there was no skipping of a few heart beats. There was no violin playing in the background. In fact my grandparents never even met before marriage akin to most Indian couples who got married

    hours when I was little to make our family and left me under my grandparents care every day of the week. My grandfather was actually the person that shaped me into who I am. I now believe that grandparents often have a much larger impact on a child's life than parents could ever have. Parents today are having to work more and harder to be able to provide for their families. Children are often left at day care centers—or with grandparents. Over the past twenty years, increased attention has been given

    Rutherfordton, North Carolina in the summers. I loved my grandparents with all my heart since they were the only set I had ever known. My father had left my brother and I at a young age and his parents had seemed to have left as he did. Every now and then they would resurface but never really had any part in my life. My mother’s parents were known to all of us as “Maw-maw and Paw-Paw”. With me being from the North all the Yankees addressed their grandparents as “Grandma and Grandpa”. I always felt extra

    Reputation is everything to most families in Ghana. My grandparents have always defended their reputation for decades. This has created a culture whereby the opinions of others about the family matters more than the actual reality. Living under such circumstances raises expectations and forces an individual to live by the dictates of society. It creates an identity crisis because you become who society expects you to be rather than finding your true self. In the early sixties, during the exodus of

    Grandparents can play a crucial role in their grandchildren’s lives. Some may play more crucial while others play less crucial roles, but when it comes down to it they change their grandchildren. Some children don’t see their grandparents at all, but some children will see their grandparents a lot or even some are taken into custody by their grandparents and live their lives being raised by them. While they spend that time with their grandparents they can learn many things about anything whether
