Do grandparents influence your child’s behaviour and thinking?

Research conducted by the Department of Family (Australian Department of Human Services? or NSW Department of Family and Community Services?) shows that grandparents can have a positive effect on children’s behaviour. Children with active grandparents are more social and more involved in school. These children show more care and compassion for people.

With our day-to-day busy life, parents may fail to provide enough quality time for their kids in helping with their homework or any other basic needs. Grandparents have better levels of patience and their life experience can help kids to solve problems in a simpler and easier way.
