I've always been fascinated by the relationship between wisdom and innocence. I think it's because I have fond memories of my grandparents. My mom's mom helped raise me and I still remember my dad's dad sitting me down next to him by the piano and playing for me. I donít really know if there are any developmental benefits to children having close relationships with their grandparents but I know that I miss my relationship with mine. I wish I could have felt more of their affection, heard more of their stories and learned from their past.
