We are grandparents; however, right now, we are not necessarily in charge of our grandchildren, because we are the ones who are the most at risk. It’s hard to believe that we are the “elders” (not a word we love!), and that we have to be more than careful. In light of that, Grandparentslink has found online programs and websites to enhance the at-home experience for our grandchildren and for us. Pass this information on to your children so they can share with the grandkids. And, pick out the ones you might like for yourselves. After all, we’re in this together.

Well, with old man winter (time) almost behind us, spring brings us a lot of things, such as daffodils and tulips in full regalia! But also, here come all those cute babies that grace our lives. Whether you have a new baby coming to the family or you are just looking for the perfect gift idea, we have you covered with the “Top Four” baby gifts that we personally have purchased and loved. Here come those “ooooooos” and “awwwws”!
Don’t Buy A Grandchild’s Love a special feature from Leslie Zinberg and Kay Ziplow, founders of Grandparentslink.com
This may be a frank talk, grandparents, but it’s an important one when it comes to being a grandparent! We all know how easy it is to spoil our little loved ones, but now and again we might go overboard with gift giving. Whether it is a situation where relatives are feeling embarrassed they can’t provide the way you might, or parents feeling undermined by your extravagant gifts, we want to help you stay in the right lane when it comes to gift giving. Because in reality, you shouldn’t have to buy your grandchild’s love!
Grandparentslink sat down with grandmas and their grandchildren, and here’s a few examples of what went on. Unedited and totally honest, these kids share their insight. This is such a kick! Hold on to your hats… we have lots more videos.
Got your attention huh? You see the legs, a pick-up truck, some jeweled stilettos (with some tell-tale dirt on the heels) and what do you think? What races through your mind? Ah, come-on, grab a smile, chuckle for a second, and join us. We want you to enjoy every moment of this grandparent journey, this part of your life that is richer, fuller, and more exhausting than ever.
Relativity speaking, we all mean well, right? Of course we do! Often times we say things with the best of intentions, but in the end, our words, our delivery, and just the general environment of the conversation fall short of anything but trouble. Hey, everyone is human. So, when we falter as adults and need to take a quick look at ourselves in the mirror, remember these words of wisdom and advice we have collected to share with you.
It’s our belief that sharing is caring; and therefore, we are all about just that! Together we bring you a combination and blend of our grandparenting tips. We hope every moment you’re together with your grandkids, you’re mindful of how truly special this journey is.
Want to be a better grandparent? We are always working on it – are you? Here’s a little something to think about… How we express ourselves to our grandchildren, with our words and tone, can often be confusing.
These dishes are like the comfort food that our grandmas used to make for us, and we’re delighted to share them with you. Everyone in your family will surely love these homemade dishes, no matter what age. These recipes are so easy and simple, and of course don’t forget the most important ingredient: make them with a whole lotta love!
