    The Value of Grandparents

    in Current Events

    How many times have you heard a Christian who was raised in a non-Christian home explain his / her faith by saying, "I had a praying grandmother?"

    Studies reveal the enormous influence grandparents have on their grandchildren. One study concludes that spending time wtih a grandparent is linked to more pro-social behavior and fewer behavior problems among adolescents. Other studies show that the stronger the ties with grandparents, the less likely children were to develop significant psychopathology in later life. Adults who have had strong relationships with grandparents tend to be much more positive to the value and importance of older citizens.

    With that in mind, radio host Joyce Oglesby has written a novel about how grandparents can pass on values to grandchildren and how our choices can effect future generations. She'll chat about that on The River today. Don't miss it.
