When a woman of 55 or 65 years sees that fragile, tiny and precious creature that is part of her legacy and that makes her a grandmother, the first thing she feels is fullness.
Since I saw you, I only want one thing: to be part of your heart
In an interesting article published in the space “Psychology Today” entitled “Learning to Be a Grandmother“, some very interesting ones are explained to us. The first is that the mother-daughter relationship improves. Suddenly, it assumes the role of “friend-mentor” that is very beneficial for both parties.
The second detail is that socially, we need to reinterpret the roles of grandparents and grandmothers. In many families, and given the current times of crisis, they often act as financial and emotional support. Therefore, they need greater institutional recognition.
Learning to be a grandmother means above all to launch an exceptional potential for self-realization and personal growth and therefore needed sometimes in a society that is more attentive and responsive to our older generations, but incredibly active and important in our day today.
On the other hand, the grand aspiration of any grandmother is to win the hearts of her grandchildren. She wants to live forever in a very special part of his interior, she wants to share as much time as possible with them, but she knows and understands that her quota of life is more limited than that of her grandchildren.
Thus, one of its tasks is none other than to transmit an education based on emotions, on recognition, on the strength of a bond that must accompany forever that child who tomorrow will be an adult. The grandmother will rise as his best model, a person who inspires, who gives good advice, who allows growing without sanction, cultivate the illusion, be the daily embrace, the hand that caresses, the gift given in secret and the smile of complicity.
The grandmothers 2.0 no longer represent the classic “grandmother”. They harbor the tenderness and affection of always but with the maturity, independence and character of the new millennium. And that … is incredibly positive for our little ones.
