***Grandparent Stereotypes (Part I)
Have you ever wanted to write a book? Here’s your occure to write a children’s book about grandparents.
First, choose the main characters.
Grandmother is (check all that apply):
___wearing a tall fodder bonnet while gardening
___offering cookies and milk
___sitting in a rocking chair
___dressed in terminated cosmos clothes
___cute, chubby, a complete parallel for the Pillsbury Doughboy
___dumpy and hunched over
___looks like she is one pace away from a nursing home
___has a mustache (just kidding)
You get the idea. Grandparents can be as offspring as their tardy thirties
but the stereotypes often portray them as barely able to walk.
While Dr. Ruth would probably be a wonderful grandparent,
Dr. Ruth Talks About Grandparents perpetuates dottering stereotypes.
No wonder so many grandparents suppose “I’m too children to be a granny.
What grandparents want to scrutinize ageist books to their grandchildren?
In fairness, there are some books that donate grandparents a positive image.
In The Berenstain Bears and the Week at Grandma’s, grandma is a little
stereotyped, offering the cubs special honey aficionado cookies and milk and feeding the birds.
Grandpa, however, picks up both bear cubs and their baggage and carries them
upstairs to their room. He teaches them how to make a craft in a bottle,
takes them fishing, has a fish fry, and teaches them how to use a yoyo.
They all go to grandma and grandpa's weekly Friday night square dance.
To be a youthful grandparent (now or possibly some day in the future)
be aware of the stereotypes and discourage to subscribe to them.
The succeeding progeny consign keep additional suggestions.
