Nothing like a Grandmother's love. Watch these grandmothers adapt to new learning norms to ensure their grandson doesn't have to skip a year of school.



Due to COVID-19 restricting students from in-person learning, parents were forced to quickly develop plans on how they would educate their children from home.

Many were frantic and left without the resources and guidance they would normally have during a typical school year.

That's when Aaron's grandma, Najiyyah, decided she would buckle down and help him move onto the next grade.

Melba said her mother in-law has adapted very well and has even overcome the challenge of learning new technology.

She even said there was a day where Aaron's teacher couldn't lead class due to technological difficulties, and his grandma was able to instruct the kids for a day.
