According to a recent study published in Evolution and Human Behavior, grandparents who babysit or provide some level of care to their grandkids had lower risks of death over a 20-year period than older adults who did not take on caregiving roles. That’s according to data analyzed from the Berlin Aging Study, which tracked the health outcomes of more than 500 people ages 70 and older.

Would you let your parents babysit your kids? How would they feel about this?

It's not babysitting. It's spending precious time with them.

Yep they wear you out, ransack the house but add lots of sparkle to your life. We wouldn't be without them.
