A POWERFUL ROLE
Grandchildren have a special relationship with their Grandpa and Grandma. As a grandparent, you can say things to and get information from teens with much more ease than can a parent. You also provide guidance and support for all the generations of the family and can be an inspiration to your grandkids.
Even if you are not a grandparent, the elder role you play in a neighborhood or community carries weight with the younger generation. If you have teens in your life, it is essential to stay informed of the issues and concerns in their lives to aid them with coping with their stress. It is equally important to know the latest drugs and peer pressures to keep youth safe.
