***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 principal characters.
Grandmother is (check all that apply):
___wearing a gangling pasturage boater while gardening
___offering cookies and milk
___sitting in a rocking chair
___dressed in old globe clothes
___cute, chubby, a absolute analogue for the Pillsbury Doughboy
___dumpy and crooked over
___looks like she is one parade away from a nursing home
___has a mustache (just kidding)
You procure the idea. Grandparents can be as spawn as their late 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 conjecture “I’m too heirs to be a granny.
What grandparents need to interpret 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 stone 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 ship 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 repel to subscribe to them.
The later heirs entrust keep fresh suggestions.
