Can you answer it? (Question series-48)

“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”

Max Lucado

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?

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    Between a grandparent and grandchild there will be a difference of several decades. In which attitudes change, Morality changes and the elders develop an elderly viewpoint!

    My childhood was odd. I never knew my grand parents, and only one of my parents. I became a total individual. Good or bad who knows, but here I am

    I was more attach to my grandmothers than my mother. And now, my son is following his old man’s footsteps too 🙂
