Newsletter Familien - Friends spanning Generations

Dear Families,

In earlier ages, grandparents tended to be strict authority figures, but times have long since changed: Today, grandma and grandpa are important conversational partners, friends, go-to persons for most grandchildren - and also an important link to the past.

Newsletter Grannies - I don’t regret anything – Non, je ne regrette rien...

Newsletter Grannies - Granny is great...

Dear Ladies,

„Grandma is great, but she's so far away" – this is a common phrase heard among many families these days. In the past, people simply had more contact with the older generation.

Newsletter Grannies - Grandparents more important than ever

Dear Ladies,

According to a new study by the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) and the Federal Institute for Population Research (BfP), around half of the children in Germany are looked after by their grandparents (in addition to school and kindergarten) - and this situation is naturally also found in many other countries. Without grandma, many families would not know how to manage their stressful everyday life between job and children.
