Winter Foods to Keep You All Warmed Up!

Here at Grandparentslink, we think this is the best time of year for cooking. There’s no holiday pressure – that’s history as our guests have all gone home. Old man winter might be trolling around outside; and all this means is that we might be indoors a little more than expected. So, if you’re at home today, this is the perfect time to drag out a heavy soup pot, pick some spices, and get something warm and comforting simmering on the back burner.

From a Parent’s Point of View: The Perils of Technology

an exclusive feature for grandparentslink.com*

There are so many wonderful things technology has done for us living in this modern world.
Staying connected and maintaining relationships is the most influential and tangible way technology impacts current and future generations. Many years ago, for instance, if a family moved, a child did not have an easy way to keep in touch with the friends he/she left behind. Times have changed. Our kids’ generation has the opportunity to never lose touch with any friends or acquaintances. Without missing a beat, they are incredibly savvy with their iPad and multiple devices. At an early age, they have the benefit of interacting with classmates, friends, and family. Those little hands move faster over their personal devices than the teeth they are supposed to brush! Think about it; do you ever delete a contact from your phone? I bet the answer is never!

Make this gift your #1 choice!

What does “that holiday morning feeling” mean to you?

Remember that feeling when you were very young- the anticipation and excitement of unwrapping a holiday present? Ok, so it may have been a long time ago (!) but watching a grandchild experience that same event brings back all those wonderful memories that we hold so dear to our hearts. And, prior to the actual holidays, a grandparent can only imagine all those thoughts of excitement running through a child’s head- just thinking about presents, and possibly listening closely in hopes of hearing footsteps on the roof!

The Involved Grandparent

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!
