Applause for the grandparents

Now that circumstances force us to distance ourselves from our grandparents, it is a good time to see their worth and importance in our lives. In these times of crisis, grandparents are considered to be very sensitive and sometimes the most neglected.

Belén Galán, Director of Marketing and Communication at thyssenkrupp Home Solutions in Spain, thinks the topic is very important:

“Grandparents not only fill certain rooms for parents, but are also very important role models for the emotional and psychological development of children. The relationship between grandparents and grandchildren, which earlier generations could hardly enjoy, is essential to the development of young children, as is the grandparents' health. It is worth promoting!
