A Terrific Grandchild-Grandparent Activity for Right Now

an exclusive feature by Victoria Waller Ed.D.*

Connecting a child to his/her grandparent(s) by doing an oral history of them is probably one of the most wonderful activities a grandchild can do with grandparents. It can be done easily by having your grandchild make up questions (or use the ones here) to interview you about your life starting when you were a child. I’m sure they will find out all kinds of facts about you that even their own parents don’t know.

Empower Children in Water and in Life!

With summer right around the corner…. there are certain things that are really important to having fun. First and foremost is a child’s ability to be comfortable and have the skills for swimming.

Lovin’ Our Earth… despite our condition right now

It is quite incredible to see what a pickle we’re all in right now. Even so, there’s so much to be grateful and thankful for. What we do now will forever resonate and create a footprint for the future, and for generations to come. 

This Wednesday, April 22nd, is Earth Day! While we may not feel too celebratory or have access to celebrate, we will have a tomorrow, and we will have a time to embrace this scared planet we occupy. So… we’ve taken the position here at Grandparentslink that possibly every day should be one where we grab a moment, look around, and see what we can do to preserve this beautiful planet we live and breathe on. You can easily practice a mindful approach and figure out what you can do to make your personal footprint a cleaner and healthier one for all. Go ahead, make a conscious choice to better our earth. Check out five ways you can make a difference (in our exclusive features), that can be easily incorporated into a style of life, thus becoming a ‘lifestyle’. Let’s do this together.

Looking Inside (all around me that is)

a special feature from co-founder Kay Ziplow

So now that it’s been several weeks of a state ordered ‘stay – in -place’, I find that with relatively much imagination, a sense of humor, and a real thirst for finding the glass half full…I am less worried about myself than all the other things I have no control over. After all, as I think most of you would agree…why get angry when anger does no good?

You are home. Your grandkids are home. We have suggestions for you all…

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.
