Newsletter Grannies - Great networking is not a secret
12. Octubre 2023
It's one of THE business buzzwords of the last few years: networking suggested to be incredibly important, otherwise you can hardly get ahead in your job. You need the right contacts, you always have to have someone on hand who is suitable for certain tasks or who can help you. Privately, this has been going on for a long time: Among friends and acquaintances people help each other as a matter of course.
A grandmother is a wonderful enrichment for family life. She cooks lunch for the offspring while the parents are at work. She reads exciting stories aloud! And she comforts little aches and pains or teenagers‘ first heartache.
the results of a study about older age by the German Allensbach Institute show that following family and hobbies, voluntary work plays a major role in the everyday lives of most senior citizens. Almost 50 percent of the over-65s volunteer an average of four hours a week. The results show, that people who are committed to something do not feel so lonely.

Newsletter Grannies - Grannies: A family’s center of calm
17. Agosto 2023
In the past, it was often the case that several generations lived in one house. If the parents had to work, the grandparents looked after the little ones. Nowadays, unfortunately, things are often different: Employees have to become more and more flexible in order to get ahead in their jobs – but that this also requires adaptable childcare is a real problem, especially for single parents.
many of our families have to manage without grandparents, but would so much like to benefit from the experience of the "older generation". Children who are looked after by temporary grandparents build up a relationship with them comparable to that of "normal" grandparents.
