????? Children’s View Of A Grandparent

Slide 1

(Taken from papers written by a class of 8-year-olds)

Slide 2

Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own.

Slide 3

They like other people's.

Slide 4

A grandfather is a man, and a grandmother is a lady!

Slide 5

Grandparents don't have to do anything, except be there when we come to see them.

Slide 6

They are so old that they shouldn’t play hard or run.

Slide 7

It is good, if they drive us to the shops and give us money.

Slide 8

When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.

Slide 9

They show us and talk to us about the colors of the flowers and also why we shouldn't step on 'cracks.’

Slide 10

They don't say, 'Hurry up.’

Slide 11

Usually grandfathers are fat, but not too fat to tie your shoes.

Slide 12

They wear glasses and can take their teeth and gums out.

Slide 13

Grandparents don't have to be smart.

Slide 14

They have to answer questions like 'Why isn't God married?' and 'How come dogs chase cats?’

Slide 15

When they read to us, they don't skip. They don't mind if we ask for the same story over again.

Slide 16

Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don't have television because they are the only grownups who like to spend time with us.

Slide 17

They know we should have snack time before bed time.

Slide 18

They say prayers with us and kiss us even when we've acted bad.

Slide 19

A Grandmother lives at the airport.

Slide 20

When we want her, we just go get her.

Slide 21

When we’re done having her visit, we take her back to the airport.

Slide 22

A Grandpa is the smartest man on earth.

Slide 23

He teaches us good things, but we don’t get to see him enough to get as smart as him.

Slide 24

And this, my friends, is a very accurate description of what a grandparent is. I know……..I am one!
