Do we love them because they're beautiful?

Introduced: September 01 2015

Or are they beautiful because we love them?


A grandchild is a blank tablet on which will be written each experience that begins to form his or her life. There will be accomplishments and disappointments. Kudos and criticism. Ambition and self-doubt. Opportunities and obstacles?


Grandparents can be a force for good in that child's life, helping him or her become more confident and resilient. We can make sure our grandchildren know -- without a shred or a pinprick or a speckle or a freckle -- that we are one (more) person who lives him or her completely.
