The article analyzes the grandparent-grandchild relationship from the side as a pedagogical model of education based on the peculiar feeling of “cure” and the playful dimension. In the care of grandchildren grandparents recover his past and gain an impulse into the future. The reflexive reinterpretation of childhood allows grandparents reading a benevolent needs of grandchildren. The grandparents of today are more open and more receptive than their predecessors, and this facilitates the relationship with their grandchildren. This reciprocity of exchanges between generations also promotes generational continuity, creating the feeling of community and solidarity that is based precisely on the pleasure for the discovery and curiosity about the world.
