Aunt & Uncle Poems

Poems for Aunts and Uncles

Every member of the family has a unique role to play in the family unit. In every family these roles are different. A role that an aunt or uncle may play is that of helping parents getting along with their children. Much like grandparents, an aunt or uncle is not subjectively involved in what happens in the family. They are often able to see things in a more objective way. Aunts and uncles also may be able to build relationships with their nieces and nephews and give them a place to get away from the family for a while. An uncle or aunt that are committed to their nieces and nephews can play an invaluable part in their lives.
