Grandparents are amazing, they have gone through it all. Without them we wouldn’t have had our parents and we would never have existed. One of the greatest joys for grandparents is grandchildren, they get to spoil them and have fun with them. They get to play with the cute new members of the family without the responsibility of being a parent.
What could be more joyful than that? Well a new study presented by Jonathan LaPook has shown that taking care of grandchildren can actually reduce the risk of developing dementia and Alzheimers disease. It also keeps people more active and entertained. However the study did note that if they took care of the children more than 5 days a week it started to show some negative effects.
