Keeping Kids Connected to their Grandparents

Love any article that wants to work on the child and grandparent bonding experience. I know for myself, that this experience was difficult. My family had moved to Ca. from Canada and with that we left all our family behind. I was just a baby and my contact with my grandparents was almost nonexistent. Today we live 1 mile from the grandparents and my kids have a real rich experience with my parents. We have even made handprints of the grandparents and handprints with grandma and the kids together.  we are blessed. Below are the points this article touch on and for the  whole article you can check out the link below picture.

thanks, Debbie

Grandparenting Long Distance











Grandparents are a blessing!
Grandparent relationships seem to come in all shapes, sizes and distances.
Our boys are blessed to have two sets of wonderful grandparents as well as some terrific great-grandparents. We’ve lived anywhere from 1,500 miles away, to sharing the same house and everything in between.
Long distance grandparenting is especially difficult when kids are young and don’t know how to
relate well. Here are some ideas to keep your kids’ relationship growing with their grandparents
