11 Things That Make Being A Grandparent Even Better Than Parenthood


Becoming a parent for the first time is one of the happiest moments in a person’s life. The love you feel for the new little baby is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.

However, with parenthood comes great and daunting responsibilities. You’re responsible for a new life now, and that’s quite the weight on your shoulders. Don’t get me wrong, it’s definitely a weight well worth bearing, but there can be a lot of pressure that comes along with being a new mom or dad.

So what has all the perks of parenthood (with some extras sprinkled in) without all the responsibility? Being a grandparent, of course. Grandma does always know best, after all.

If you’re already a grandparent, you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you have a parent that helps you with your kids, I’m sure that you’ve seen how happy it makes them.

These 11 things are just a few of the perks of being a grandma or grandpa. Did we miss any?
