“You be you
Don’t be your parents or grandparents
You can admire them, appreciate them, and learn from them
But you can not be them
You aren’t them”
Why the author of the quote tells us not to imitate our parents or grandparents?
I don’t have an idea. May be the author wants the children to have separate individuality and identity. Maybe the idea of being ‘Be Yourself’.
Is it not a fact that we see our parents and grandparents as Role Models?
Are they not our mentors and memory makers?
My understanding is Grandparents can impact the lives of grandchildren more than the parents.
In many situations, as I understand grandparents come to the rescue of grandchildren after parental separation or divorce.
You must also be knowing that we celebrate National Grandparents Day annually. (Dates differ in each country)
“Grandchildren are grandparent’s link to the future. Grandparents are the child’s link to the past” Unknown
How much do you want to become like your Parents or Grandparents?
Or you wish, you were not like them?
