Stay in Touch with Grandkids!

Keep in touch: grandparents share ways to stay close to theirgrandkids.

Letters and emails from grandparents about grandchildren and how they developcloseness with grandkids, then stay close to each particular grandchild.

My husband and I have developed (using one of those easy do-it-yourself web pages) a web site for our two granddaughters. We live in Canada and they in the states. So each week we change the site so that they can tune in to something new. We do counting, show pictures of their favorite TV characters, put up coloring links their mom can print out for them to color, send kisses and hugs. Last week the site was all about frogs. Even found a frog jigsaw puzzle on the internet. It is fun, challenging for me and enjoyable to them. It is a win/win proposition.


Although my grandchildren live fairly close to me & my husband, we don’t get to see one particular set of grandkids too often! One way I have been keeping in touch is by telephoning every week or every other week, asking about homework, new teachers, etc. If they have a problem with homework, I help them right over the phone! If they have trouble reading some words, I have them spell the word and then I pronounce it for them, also giving a meaning for the word if they don’t understand it properly. Both of these grandchildren have learning disabilities, therefore I am another person to help them, one who has a little more patience than their parents! We get along fine this way, & I’m happy to help any way I can. Sometimes pop-pop will bring the two kids into our house, then I help them with their homework and of course I must "sign" my name to their workbooks. Anyway, it works!!

A caring set of grandparents.





For grandchildren under 10, the US Mail is still pretty special. Our 12-year-old grandchild is not as easy. Any hints from someone?
