A Screen Time Out

The State of Grandparenting

a special feature from Kay Ziplow & Leslie Zinberg, founders

Let’s face it, family dynamics are ever changing, and grandparenting is changing with it…so painting a picture of grandparenting today is a complicated task. For example, on one hand, greater mobility has meant that families are spread across the country and many children aren’t able to see their grandparents as frequently. Life is hectic for all generations and even families who live near each other may not spend much time together. Look at what occurred when we all were in quarantine! Covid has forever impacted every facet of our lives. On the other hand, people are having fewer children and living longer. For most of human history, families looked like a pyramid, with few older members at the top and many young members at the bottom.

20 Life Lessons from Mister Rogers

Children are like Sponges

a special feature by Sarina Peddy, early childhood educator

We all know how adorable it is when a baby repeats a word after you- right?! Babies soak in information from the stimuli surrounding them. Did you know that between birth and 3 years of age, the human brain increases to 80% of its adult size.? Now, that’s a powerful fact.

5 Ways to Achieve Family Harmony

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

Yes, it’s true.
It is possible despite all the different personalities, needs, dispositions, temperaments, and personas, to achieve family harmony. This notion of being unified on the basis of mutual family respect, tolerance, consideration, and love, doesn’t mean that anyone will lose their identity. The ability to trust, support, and communicate differences in a constructive manner, and look beyond the selfness, will only procure a healthy picture of family and connections.
