It is difficult for society around the world to accept the fact that there is violence against the elderly and yes they are not seen as "cute old grandparents", but treated as objects and abused them. There is an idealized opinion about the family and life within it, so it is hard to believe about the existence of violence within it and especially against the elderly.


We are all getting older, no matter how old we are at the moment. However, the young population does not thinking about age. They forget the fact that all the discussions, inscriptions and insights about aging and life about old age actually concerns themselves, more precisely their future. A man while still young, the choices made build their age.


When was the last time you heard a story that moved you deeply, maybe something you read, or watched, or something that was passed down from generation to generation. While some people they learn best through facts and figures, there are many that relate to experiences and emotions. We all remember the stories of our grandparents, told at the table or around the fire, for time of cold winter evenings. We remember stories that have been passed down from generation to generation, stories that last for decades, and sometimes centuries. Every story, it is told in different ways, but each has preserved its essence, always leaving a different impression.

Here is a story that will shake you up a bit and encourage you to think.


There was once a weak old woman who lived with her son, daughter-in-law and grandson after the death of her beloved husband. Her health was deteriorating daily, so her hands were shaking and food was occasionally falling out of the spoon, and soup was spilling on the table. Dissatisfied with the old woman's condition and behavior, the son and daughter-in-law set up a table in the corner of the room and ordered him to sit and eat there. During the meal, she was sad and looked at her son and daughter-in-law with tears in her eyes, but they did not notice or talk to her, except when they unjustly scolded her. One evening, just before dinner, their little girl sitting on the floor was playing dice. "What are you doing to your daughter?" The father asked her. "I'm making a table for you and your mom so you two can sit and eat alone in the corner of the room when I grow up," the girl replied. Father and mother fainted from pain and began to cry, realizing what injustice the old women were doing. That evening the son and daughter-in-law returned the old woman to her old place at the big table, but the stain on their conscience remained forever.


Just as babies crave touch, so do older children and adults need attention, only later we learn to replace physical touch with other forms of recognition, and that can be a smile, a nod, a handshake, a hug, a compliment.
Our task is to help the elderly to remain responsible for the decisions that affect them and to strive for older people with a high degree of dependence to maintain dignity and self-belief, to promote self-esteem and to take into account the views of older people when organizing their life and solve their problems. One such sentence is: "If you need help, tell me and I will help you in what you do not understand, or you cannot do on your own."

They wanted to admit that, or not infrequently, who today has time for grandmothers. However, they are always there somewhere and waiting for you to need them. How many grandmothers actually need us?


As much as you are in this modern chaos, I understand everything and I know that this is the 21st century, but visit your grandmother or call her. Send a message! Do it whenever you can. An hour of talk time, a little help, is a lot for your grandmothers. Don't look for an excuse, look for an opportunity to brighten your grandmother's day.

You know your grandmother deserves it all!

Your article is a good message. I'm not a grandmother yet. My only son is still studying and there is no girlfriend yet. But it is important to teach young people to respect grandparents, whether or not they are their own grandparents.

Children follow the example of their parents. It is very important that we show them how they treat the elderly.
