Founded in the 1970s, Grandparents Day was started by Marian McQuade from West Virginia who wanted a national holiday declared in order to honour grandparents across the world. She got her wish thanks to President Carter in the 1970s and, in 1990, Age Concern brought the holiday over to the UK.
In recent studies it has shown that children who spend regular time with their grandparents have been shown to develop better socially and emotionally. And its not just the children that benefit; grandparents also believe that looking after the little ones has brought them closer to their grown-up children as well.
