Struggling with gift ideas for your grandchildren this Christmas? Why not give them something that doesn’t cost anything, doesn’t need to be wrapped or require a chimney or batteries, will always fit and never needs to be returned? Not only that, it could be very useful for many Christmas’ to come.
What is it? It’s information, but not just any information – it’s great, practical, everyday legal information that the younger generation will just lap up!
On Christmas Day, at an appropriate time and before they have the chance to be disappointed with your lack of material offerings, gather them around you and the Christmas tree. As they gather at your feet in salivating expectation, eyes agog at the mystery of Santa’s generosity about to unfold, you regale them with the following: “My loving grandchildren, as you grow older, I think it is important for you to know something about the law so that you can grow up just like me, a good, law abiding citizen”.
From here, you go on to ask, did you know that:
If you’re under 10 years old
From 10 to 14 years old
From 14 years on
For 16-year-olds and on
And wait for it, my darling grandchildren, you must add, at this point your lives will be verging on adulthood.
From 18 years old and on
As your pearls of wisdom hang heavy in the atmosphere, I can just see the transfixed expressions on their faces as they sit in stunned admiration and appreciation for such valuable life lessons so lovingly prepared and conveyed to them. Can you see their expressions too?
