Childhood is always inextricably linked to grandparents. The best memories are associated with our grandmothers: carefree summer vacations, delicious pies, hearty pancakes and many other pleasant and surprising things that a loving and dear person can give to their grandchildren. They love and pamper their grandchildren so much, trying to fulfill all their wishes. The Oregon grandpa really wanted to spend more time with his grandkids. He had fifteen grandchildren, ten of whom were schoolchildren.
The man had the idea to buy a bus and take the children to school. He and his wife started saving money. For two years the required amount was collected and the search for a suitable bus began. Grandfather got lucky and bought a bus that was once used to transport children. He slightly updated the interior of the bus and limited the seat belts. When the children saw the cheerful yellow bus, they were delighted.
Every morning, before work, Grandpa picked up the children from home and took them to school, and after school he picked them up from school. The children were happy to spend each day with their grandfather, who was a very cheerful person by nature. Grandfather is the best friend and mentor, and he is important for the formation of the personality of the younger generation. He is another man in the family, an example and bearer of invaluable life experience. And they invariably enjoy the love and respect of their grandchildren. The secret is that the grandfather does not feel as responsible for the children as the parents.
From then on, we can observe a certain ease in communication, often humor and an ability to compromise. And even when the grandfather is strict, it’s not as scary as the father’s punishment. “Grandfather” – how much warmth and care in this word! The image of the oldest member of the family remains invisibly with the child for the rest of his life. The grandchildren love him with a special love. After all, grandfather will never criticize the actions of his grandchildren, but will help to understand what happened and give valuable advice for the future.
