A quick chuckle to share:

On a recent weekend when the grandkids stayed over — our 4-year-old grandson came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me that he had dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. All the while this happened on ‘grandpa’s’ watch, as I went to do the dinner dishes!  I came right out of the kitchen and walked over to our grandson to calm him down, and I bravely fished out the toothbrush and threw it into the garbage.  I looked in his eyes, and told him, grandma has another brand-new toothbrush just for him, and he should not worry anymore.

Do You Step Outside Your Box?

a special feature from Kay & Leslie, founders grandparentslink.com

Let’s face it- as we age, our brains function as a task automaton- meaning that we keep ourselves in the comfort zone of what we know best. We tend to find security and well-being in the routines we set forth, and manage accordingly. In doing so, we are truly fulfilled when we experience what we sense is most comfortable or predictable. It’s not that we become boring as we age- rather experience gives us boundaries and parameters in which to operate our daily lives and relationships. There’s nothing wrong with operating in your own comfort zone; it is truly the path of least resistance.

Do You Live Your Most Authentic Life?

an exclusive feature from Kay & Leslie, founders grandparentslink.com

As we age, we often tend to forget just who and what we are. That’s so sad, since we are more vital than ever — to our families and to ourselves and to our friends. This is not our last act, but the beginning of new and interesting experiences, and that’s why it’s so very important to do a little self-examination occasionally. A little check on the system never hurt anyone.

Do You Step Outside Your Box?

a special feature from Kay & Leslie, founders grandparentslink.com

Let’s face it- as we have aged, our brains function as a task automaton- meaning that we keep ourselves in the comfort zone of what we know best. We tend to find security and well-being in the routines we have set forth, which we manage accordingly. In doing so, we are truly fulfilled when we experience what we sense is most comfortable or predictable. It’s not that we become boring as we age- rather experience gives us boundaries and parameters in which to operate our daily lives and relationships.

8 Things that Concern Us About Kids These Days

a special feature from Kay & Leslie, founders

The saying that’s been passed down from grandparents’ generation to generation, “Oh, those kids these days…,” has taken on a different meaning in the most recent years. We are well aware that technological advances have created a new palate of communication skills that could be considered cold, distant, non-personal and far removed from human eye-to-eye contact. While our children have many obstacles to face just like every generation before them, our worries for future generations have taken on a different nature.

How to be the ‘Grand’parent You Dreamed of Becoming

First things first ‘grand’parents, we need you to realize that it’s not a competition with anyone… not with your spouse to see who can get more attention, and certainly not with your own child, nor the mother or father of your adored grandchild. The grandkids are embarking upon a part of their lives where they need to discover and uncover and experience all that life has brought forth.  You now must learn as a grandparent to be in control of consideration and respect, and manage your emotions so that you are not the cause of family despair. Sometimes, as much as you may not want to…you may have to learn a little self-discipline and keep your thoughts and opinions to yourself.
