When you get together with elderly parents (or other relatives), what kinds of things do you do? My parents are not very active so we sit and watch tv most of the time or talk about their dog.

lol yup same here, my mom and I would guess answers on family feud and my dad would either be outside in the garden with the dogs or in the garage watching the news or antenna television :)
When the grandkids came we usually all sat on the front porch and talked or my mom would rent a horror movie lol (not my thing, not scary, bad acting always hehe)
Currently I'm trying to get my dad into watching Les Feldick once a day for 30 minutes so he can better understand the word, he can't see well enough to read and he never learned anything growing up because the masses were in latin :/

I don't think the catechism classes were in Latin so he should have learned something if he attended those like Catholic kids are supposed to.

I stay with my Parents, (most of the Indians do that) They get themselves involved in TV or Whatsapp. I just sit in my computer and waste my time instead of talking or spending time with them.

You probably think you get too much interaction with them by living with them but you'll definitely miss them someday when they're gone.

His school taught him that growing up, he tells me all kinds of unorthodox teachings and I have to 'unlearn' him, I also tell him what the vatican official site says too because he was worried about infant baptism thinking that his granddaughter will go to hell, the vatican says they under Gods mercy until age of x i forgot what age it is actually
