I feel the need to post. and since it’s past the dateline, this is gonna be part of Ramblings.
I just read Keer’s post, and read the comments too. I feel like I’ve just discovered this hidden… Magical Truth of How Grandchildren Feel About Their Grandparents under a rock.
I never knew there were that many people who felt so detached and distanced from their grandparents too. I only knew one other friend who felt the same way when I explained my idea to her. And after reading the comments on Keer’s post, it’s seriously like Whoa. Before that I thought that only I had this problem , so it’s really interesting how common it actually is. Maybe that’s why there was a period of time last year ( i think) where there were so many articles raising awareness about the elderly being sent to old folks’ homes and their children being unwilling to take care of them.
Maybe the a Grandparents And Grandchildren Day should be set up (yes another holiday!) to promote awareness and improve relationship between both parties.
