Happy Grandparents Day!: Biggest life lessons kids can learn from their lolos at lolas
Lolo at lola may be the biggest spoilers in your child's life, but they do impart lessons that only the privilege of having lived the years can bring.
Passing on the wisdom
Your kids will certainly benefit a lot from the bonding moments they share with their lola at lola. Click "next” to find out what some of the biggest lessons kids can learn from them.
It’s good to be spoiled by grandparents
Leaving it to the parents to be the disciplinarians, grandparents have the advantage of loving their grandkids unconditionally and assuring them that they’re loved no matter what. So when children – especially teenagers – have something they want to talk about but are too uncomfortable to approach their mom or dad, lolo or lola can lend that impartial ear.
Don’t sweat it
Lola would say, "Okay lang ‘yan,” when she finds out her apo didn’t make it to the soccer team. Besides, the kid would probably benefit more from having more time to spend bonding with mom – and lola! – at home and learning other equally useful skills like baking and gardening.
Never lose touch with your family roots
Stick true to your family and culture by upholding tradition
Life is a cycle
