Grandparents and their Influence on the Younger Generation

The relationship between grandchild and grandparents is a special one. Time spent with the older generations of your family should be cherished, and lessons that are taught during weekend visits to your grandparents’ houses often stay with you for the entirety of your life. There is wisdom that is passed down by the grandparents that you can’t get from anybody else in the world, and that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. After all, most people have grandparents that have lived through at least one World War and have seen things that they never wish any of their family members will ever have to see.

They remain the most loved generation of the family, and things that grandchildren do are synonymous with their grandparents. Some of these traits are well known, but we also pick up habits that we never knew we picked up during those much loved afternoons or weekends with our grandparents.

Connections to family

The most important thing about grandparents is their ability to bring the family closer together. One way in which they do this is by teaching their grandchildren about the stories of their family. This can be done as either a bedtime story or by relaying funny stories at family dinners. Either way, it brings the grandchildren closer to their heritage and allows them to learn of new family members that they may not have known existed.

Research has found that these stories stay with grandchildren and teaches them valuable life lessons that they take with them and encourage them to overcome advisory. This is because stories that involve our grandparents are more relatable and grandchildren feel like they are more real than the stories that they read in books.

Hobbies

Family time is cherished as you get older and memories of spending time having fun with your grandparents remain the overriding memory that you remember. Card games such as poker, blackjack and solitaire are often introduced to grandchildren by their parents, and they take these skills forward with them in life when they play casino games such as blackjack, poker and roulette with Novibet. These games that are taught by grandparents increase self-confidence and the ability to overcome challenges in learning.

Most importantly, however, they encourage grandchildren to set aside time to have fun with their family, and this is something that remains important as they grow older.

Undying Support

Grandparents go above and beyond for their family and do everything that they can to ensure that their grandchild is safe no matter of their age. This may simply be picking up children from school or looking after them when they are ill or offering financial assistance. They are also the perfect place to find advice as they have greater knowledge in an array of areas. Even the smallest acts of support send a big message to children, and that is something that stays with them; they always know that their grandparents are there for them.

Samuel Leeds Buys Shares In Property Tribes; Says He Wants To Make It Better

People in UK property circles may be familiar with the very public dispute between former MTV presenter, property investor, and community manager of the company Property Tribes, Vanessa Warwick, & property investment trainer and owner of the company ‘Property Investors’, Samuel Leeds; as Leeds has accused Warwick of assisting with racism and discrimination against ethnic minority tenants. In recent news, Samuel Leeds was reported to have bought a 35% share of the company Property Tribes, making him officially now a person of significant control at Property Tribes.

Warwick established Property Tribes to accumulate wisdom from various property owners and landlords to create a place of guidance for people in the industry to do business better. According to the company,

“We wanted to create a free use, safe, and agenda-free place for landlords to get information from a “hive mind”, not a singularity, so that they could learn and grow their property business.”

However, in one of his recent videos, Samuel Leeds pointed out blatant support of racism in some of the advice coming from Warwick herself. As one of the landlords asks on the forum – if they would be implicated by the race discrimination laws in the UK for refusing tenancy to Bangladeshi families as the landlord is not fond of the smell of their staple food, curry; Vanessa Warwick herself is seen advising against mentioning the reason for said refusal, thus averting the legal repercussions altogether.

In the video, Leeds points out several more situations where Warwick has behaved in a racist manner. In fact, she has become a new advisor on the panel of the UK’s Property Redress Scheme and has been under criticism in their forum as well for supporting discrimination against ethnic minorities.

Warwick also expressed strong disapproval of Leeds as a property trainer citing the reason that his students came from the “vulnerable” demographic. Leeds called out the racist mindset in this reasoning, as in reality, his students predominantly come from ethnic minorities and don’t fall in the “vulnerable” category. He began drawing attention to the issue over his YouTube channel and his website, and ended up facing severe disparagement from Warwick and her followers. Leeds finally sued Warwick for defamation and she brought a counter lawsuit for six-figure damages.

In an attempt to put an end to the battle once and for all, Samuel Leeds reports to have bought a share, 35% to be exact, of the company, Property Tribes. Even though he is only a minority shareholder and will have limited control, Leeds believes he can make a difference in “cleaning up the company” and reduce racism in the forum.

He jokingly adds,

“Because they trolled me, I wanted to at least get paid… Like Michael Jackson did to Eminem.”

Leeds pledges that any money he makes off this transaction will be donated to charitable organisations that tackle racism and online bullying. In addition, Leeds will donate an extra £50,000 to organisations that fight hatred in the UK. With this move, he is determined to take a strong stand against all discriminations in the property sector or any other industry.
