How to Make Childhood Lasts

What every grandparent knows about.


Childhood is an amazing time that is full of wonder for both the child and the adults around him or her, but it has a catch: it doesn’t last long. One minute they are little children learning their first few steps; the next, they are in little league. One night they insist you tell them one more bedtime story; the next, they’ll regal you with one they learned from school.

Indeed, time flies when you are having a blast, and every minute spent with a child is guaranteed to be full of life, so make every childhood count. It doesn’t last long but memories do, so go fishing, dance in the rain, play guessing games, share bedtime stories with your child or your grandchild.

Author Ronald Shank did just that with his grandkids. Among other activities, he told them stories that later inspired him to write “Grandpa’s Stories,” a collection of short stories every parent or grandparent can enjoy with their precious little ones. Every story has moral lessons for kids, so they learn and get to be entertained at the same time.

Shank hopes his grandkids will remember every story—his gift to them—and every child in the world get the chance to enjoy a good bedtime story.

About the Author

Ronald Shank has been writing off and on for 50 years. He started with poetry—some rhyming, most not; some long, some short; some humorous, others sad, but always very simple. He moved on to articles and newsletters and eventually into short stories. He has always found it enjoyable to write, just not always convenient. Even now with work and their little farm and church, it keeps him very busy and it’s hard to find the time to write.

He lives in Gray Court, South Carolina, on a small farm they call Bumble Bee farm, because they live on Bumble Bee Lane. It’s actually their driveway, since they are the only ones on Bumble Bee Lane. He has lived in a number of places over the years, from New England to Florida, to the Mid-West, to North Carolina, and finally, to South Carolina.

He held many and varied jobs over the years as well as a short tour of duty in the Air Force in the late sixties, where he was stationed in Maine, Labrador, and New Mexico. He found the Lord back in 1995, and that was when he really started to write seriously. First Christmas stories, evidenced by his book “Holiday Stories Volume 1,” and then he started to write Easter and Thanksgiving stories, evidenced by his book “Holiday Stories Volume 2.” Thereafter, he started to write little stories for the grandchildren, especially for their birthdays. He wanted it to be something they would have and could enjoy even when they got older, possibly reading to their children and grandchildren someday. He looks forward to writing a novel someday in the not-too-distant future (most likely after he retires), but for now, short stories seem to suit him best.
