Grandparenting from a Distance
These days many families live a long way apart from each other so you may not have the privilege of spending a lot of time with your grandchild.
Some ideas on keeping in touch:
- Use technology to your advantage and see and talk to your grandchild using Computer webcams and free software such as SKYPE.
- Visit them, write letters and call the family often, even if they don’t ring you.
- Offer to have the family stay with you when they visit so you really get to know your grandchild.
