No one can deny that grandmas are the best. They shower their grandchildren with so much love and are willing to do anything for their little ones. While moms have to deal with the daily responsibility of being a parent, grandmas only have to focus on their love for the children and are not afraid to give as much of it as they possibly can.
But the video below has gone viral because a young boy answers a very serious question. Someone with a camera asked him about his 100-year-old grandma who he calls “MamMa.” The person wanted to know one thing specifically, why does the boy in the cute martial arts uniform think God created his grandma. His answer is taking the internet by storm.
Although the boy has his own reason for why God created grandmas, science backs up his insights. There is evidence from a plethora of researchers that dive into why grandmas are the best.
Psychology Today indicates that grandmothers are calmer around children than they were as mothers. You’ll see grandmas letting things go much faster than the child’s parents would. They don’t care if the little one acts out a little and are more than happy to give them a sweet treat even if it is against the rules. If the child was her own, grandma might have lashed out with anger, but since she is one step removed, she can handle the situation with ease and equanimity.
Grandmas also get the opportunity to focus on the fun parts of being a parent. They don’t have to worry about paying for diapers, health insurance, and figuring out which school the child should go to. Grandmas get to play and do all the fun things like taking their grandchildren to all-you-can-eat buffets and out to the movies.
Although the evidence is already heavily in favor of grandmothers, this little boy has his own insights that he wants to enlighten the camera crew about.
While we could give you all the juicy insights he has to share, you should watch the video. It will educate you about his views on his MamMa. And you’re going to love it.
If possible, children should spend time with their grandparents as much as possible. They cook the best food and shower love like it is rain. But they are also very dedicated to their grandchildren. They will be there with them and have more patience than a parent might because they’ve done it before. And besides, it’s been a little while since they had a baby or a young child in their life, so it is refreshing and brings back all the good memories from when they were young parents.
Grandmas can also instill a lot of life lessons in grandchildren. They’ve been around for a lot longer and know the world better than others. They can help inform the little one about what to do and how to maneuver through life. Although things have changed since they were young, people are more or less the same.
