Yes, you are still your child’s parent, but being a parent to their offspring is off limits. Grandparents can be very inspirational to young people.

Here are a few more things today's helicopter parents would be shocked to learn people.   One of the most rewarding things grandparents can do with their grandchildren is read to them. Reading to young children improves their cognitive and language skills and improves their reading comprehension. Even before the kids learn to talk, they enjoy sitting in grandma’s lap to look at picture books.
