Grandparents & Grandchildren, A Special bond
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.
