Raised by Grandma

What do Barack Obama, Willie Nelson and Oprah Winfrey have in common? They were all raised by Grandmas.

There is a long list of well known people who have been raised in part or completely by a Grandma.

Maya Angelou was also raised by her Grandmother.  “I try to be the same kind of grandparent I had,” she says. “My grandmother was the best. She didn’t talk much. She spoke very softly when she did, although she had truly a huge voice.”.

The President gives credit to his Grandma and Grandfather for instilling in him Mid-Western values.

A Grandma can have an impact on a child’s life and even is often called in to raise the child. Have any of you  raised your grandchild? How is this different than raising your child.

The role a Grandma plays in  a child’s life always needs to be praised and especially so  when you are the parent also.
