Mark it in your diary: date change for Grandparents Day
GRANDPARENTS Day has been changed from November 5 to Sunday, November 18.
This is the day grandchildren, children and the community have the chance to thank grandparents for their love and support.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that in 2011 around 937,000 Australian children received child care from a grandparent on a regular basis.
This represented over a quarter of all children (26%) aged 0-12 years who regularly attended some type of child care.
Not bad, grandma and granddad.
So whatever the day, we owe the family seniors a big vote of thanks and love for all they've done so get to it, kids.
