Grandparents & Grandchildren, A Special bond

lizzie_7August 2, 2008

Grandparents can play an important role in the lives of their grandchildren whether they live near or far. There is a special bond that can be nurtured with activities like the one described. Fun and memorable activities donÂt have to cost money; itÂs the time shared together that is valuable. There are many things you can do to nurture the grandparent-grandchild bond. You can share something as simple as reading together. A feeling of closeness develops when your grandchild is sitting on your lap or next to you sharing a special book. Write a special letter to your grandchildren with a favorite memory of time spent together. Share your feelings about the day they were born. For an older grandchild that may be struggling with a challenge, share something that you struggled with and how you handled it. And of course thereÂs always the three words that no child tires of hearing: I love you.

I fully agree with this statement. We take everyday that we get to share with our grandson as memories that are special to each of us and that can never be taken away and/or changed.
