Connecting with Grandparents (2-7-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   To help your child connect with her grandparents.

PRACTICE:   Today, make an appointment for a time when your child can connect with her grandparents in person or by phone, face time, Skype, email or snail mail. Remember, most grandparents still appreciate old fashioned mail like cards and letters.

It will be fun for both the grandparents and the child to look forward to the “date.”

If your child cannot connect with her grandparents, help her think of someone who is or can be like a grandparent to her – a relative, friend of the family, someone in your neighborhood, at church, etc.

Plan a way your child can let that person know she enjoys and appreciates him or her.

Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, EMMA’S QUESTION.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
