Aunts are like their second mothers. And while their parents teach them, their grandparents spoil them, aunts are there to make them better people simply by being loving and awesome!

Because aunts are the best teachers! They always offer different perspectives to help children learn anything from numbers and words to hard life truths.

Because aunts are amazing listeners! They will listen to their nieces and nephews for hours. Whenever they need advice other than their parents’, their aunt is always there for them.

Because aunts bring gifts! They buy their nieces and nephews great presents because they love spoiling them.

Because aunts teach values. They teach kids what’s right and what’s wrong.

Because aunts are the unofficial psychologists! They always have the best advice for everything. They don’t judge, they understand. That’s what makes them children’s favorite counselors.
