***Grandparent Stereotypes (Part I)
Have you ever wanted to write a book? Here’s your follow to write a children’s tale about grandparents.
First, choose the leading characters.
Grandmother is (check all that apply):
___wearing a big straw trilby while gardening
___offering cookies and milk
___sitting in a rocking chair
___dressed in invalid macrocosm clothes
___cute, chubby, a entire equivalent for the Pillsbury Doughboy
___dumpy and hunched over
___looks like she is one stride away from a nursing home
___has a mustache (just kidding)
You achieve the idea. Grandparents can be as family as their unpunctual 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 reckon “I’m too progeny to be a granny.
What grandparents absence to study ageist books to their grandchildren?
In fairness, there are some books that allot 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 bottom 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 perhaps some day in the future)
be aware of the stereotypes and reject to subscribe to them.
The next heirs consign retain supplementary suggestions.
