What is the duty of a grandparent?
A grandparent’s primary duty is to love their grandkids. We want to have fun with them and be there for them when they need us. Parents are frequently overburdened and have insufficient time to dedicate to their children. Grandkids enjoy being the center of attention while playing sports, swimming, or playing video games. Whatever their interests are, the children value their grandparents’ love because it is often a precious item. I’m always teasing them and joking around with them, so they never know if I’m serious or not.
But I have a rule: if my grandchildren or anyone ask the truth, I tell them the truth. And I don’t tell jokes that are insulting to anyone. That, I’m sure, helps them trust me. I remember the saying, “It’s a bigger honor to be trusted than to be loved,” and I try my best to put it into practice.
