Homophobic Grandparents Trap And Pester Teen Grandson About His Sexuality

Grandparents have the potential to have some very special relationships with their grandchildren. But something about the generational differences can either bring them really close or be a barrier that holds them back from being able to relate to each other. We so often hear the term, "oh, they're from a different time, don't take what they say to heart" but that doesn't really make any sense. Sure they were alive during a time where 'things were different' but they were also alive during the times where those 'things' changed, so why couldn't they also shift their outlook?

Crazy Mom Ashamed Of Son's Vasectomy, Instead Tells People His Wife Is Infertile

A lot of parents place excessive pressure on their children to bring them, grandchildren. It's nothing new, and if you plan to have kids anyway, it's not such a big deal. But not everyone wants children, and we don't 'owe' our parents grandchildren. If they want to take care of something so badly, invest in some kind of house-pet, or succulent.

If one's parents are understanding, eventually they should be able to respect that their children don't want to have kids. But some parents can just get more and more obsessed with the lack of toddlers in their life and just progressively lose their sh*t.

Grandma Damages Black Granddaughter's Hair While Straightening It To Help Her 'Fit In'

Grandma's and their grandchildren usually have a very special relationship, separate from their parents. Usually, it's a bit sweeter because it's not usually the grandparents who do the punishing. But not all grandparents are perfectly sweet and kind to their grandchildren. Sometimes they refuse to understand them and don't respect their wishes because they are 'stuck in their ways'. Personally, I've always found this to be a very weak excuse, the idea that old people are incapable of learning new things, it's simply not true. There are 70-year-olds going back to school to get their second degree.

reddit thread about worst family vacations | thumbnail text - badguyfedora · 6y Went to Disneyworld one year when we went with a couple other families. My parents fought over something when we got back to the room, my dad got all pissed off and left with a large bottle of vodka and ibuprofen subtly implying he was going to go kill himself, made a scene with his friend from one of the families. Came back after just drinking some of the vodka and maybe taking a couple of the pills and went to bed

Russian Artist Makes Superheroes More Relatable By Re-imagining Them As Pensioners

What if superheroes got old? It seems impossible, right? Because superheroes and cartoon characters don't age and we often regard old age as the period in which our lives begin to decay and we cannot afford our superheroes to go down that path, right? But in order to make them more relatable, Russian artist tried to do just that and the result is hilarious, fun and eye-catching. Leysa Guseva, a Perm-based Russian graphic artist, created a series of illustrations imaginatively called "Pensioners".  This is where we get to see our favourite Marvel, DC and even Disney characters finally taking a well-deserved rest, without giving up their duties entirely.
