On the first Sunday after Labor Day, we celebrate Grandparents Day.
Grandparents are such an important part of families across North Dakota and Minnesota...and everywhere!. As lawyers for families, we help families through difficult times. But we also get to join the joyous times, too. That’s why we love celebrating grandparents.
The part that grandparents play in the family, the bond between grandparents and grandchildren, and the lessons learned from our grandparents are just a few of the reasons we love Grandparents Day.
Today, “family” means many different things to different people. Grandparents are no exception.
Whether you are a biological grandparent to a child or a grandparent-figure, your presence in the lives of your children and their children has the unique and wonderful ability to bring comfort, stability, and joy to everyone in the family.
The impact of grandparents is especially felt during uncertain times—like a divorce or separation. Many times, grandparents are the constant and consistent source of comfort for children and grandchildren during difficult times of change.
Grandparents are in a great position to provide love support and joy to children.
The bonds of comfort and love felt between grandparents and grandchildren are the joyous kind of relationship that truly demonstrates the power of family.
Who better to learn from than someone who’s seen it all?
There can be no doubt that grandparents thrive as advice-givers because they’ve been through the same struggles their children and grandchildren now face. Grandparents often see the bigger picture and provide encouragement and love in a way no one else can.
Whether you're a grandparent, parent or child, Grandparents Day is the day to celebrate those who’ve been “grandparents” in our lives.
We hope you’ll join us this Grandparents Day in doing just that.
