Masks are here to stay — at least for a long while. One of our favorite ways to wear a mask (and not lose it) is to wear a mask chain. Have you tried it? We have found two sites that make the chains… and the chains are made by KIDS. Plus, each company donates a portion of their proceeds to charity. How great is this! Take a look. You may want to order one – or more!

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.
The role of being a grandparent is quite possibly one of the best adventures of life! Maybe you’ve longed to be a grandparent and now the time has finally come, or you might already be deep in the trenches. Wherever you are in your journey, it’s always a good idea to step back and explore yourself as a grandparent.
We are big fans of children’s books here at Grandparentslink! After all, many a life lesson can be learned in the simplest of ways. Take a look at some of our favorite quotes from children’s books that we still share daily, even in adulthood!

Grandparents have a role in the lives of their grandchildren, but what exactly is that role? Let your adult children take the lead and discuss your expectations with them.
Becoming a grandparent changes everything. Coupled with incomparable joy is uncertainty about where you fit in. Your role — not always appreciated by society — is vitally important in shaping a grandchild’s life. At the end of the day, you and the parents want what’s best for the child. But, as you may discover you don’t always share the same ideology, and you must take a step back and understand that you’ve entered their world, sometimes feeling like a foreign ambassador. And, what you may really need is a handbook for diplomacy!
