***Grandparent Stereotypes (Part I)
Have you ever wanted to write a book? Here’s your chance to write a children’s novel about grandparents.
First, choose the main characters.
Grandmother is (check all that apply):
___wearing a lanky pasturage trilby while gardening
___offering cookies and milk
___sitting in a rocking chair
___dressed in terminated creation clothes
___cute, chubby, a entire parallel for the Pillsbury Doughboy
___dumpy and stooped over
___looks like she is one footslog away from a nursing home
___has a mustache (just kidding)
You earn the idea. Grandparents can be as young as their slow 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 believe “I’m too issue to be a granny.
What grandparents need to scan ageist books to their grandchildren?
In fairness, there are some books that give grandparents a positive image.
In The Berenstain Bears and the Week at Grandma’s, grandma is a little
stereotyped, offering the cubs special honey kernel cookies and milk and feeding the birds.
Grandpa, however, picks up both move cubs and their baggage and carries them
upstairs to their room. He teaches them how to make a keel 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 feasibly some day in the future)
be aware of the stereotypes and repudiate to subscribe to them.
The succeeding progeny leave own fresh suggestions.
