On Your Watch- What Every Grandparents Needs

a special feature from Kay Ziplow & Leslie Zinberg, founders grandparentslink.com

No matter what age a grandchild may be — we can’t stress enough how important it is to have medical information on each child… just in case. And, while this may be everyone’s worst nightmare (i.e. a medical emergency), why not be prepared and have the information on hand so that medical attention isn’t hampered because you ‘just didn’t know’.

Your Grandchildren’s Food Allergies: A Guide for Grandparents

If you have any experience in the food allergy world, you likely know the uphill battle that adults and children with food allergies, as well as parents of children with food allergies, face when it comes to educating those around you. From scenes in TV and film that make fun of allergic reactions to the “we never had food allergies when we were growing up” attitude (which, by the way, is somewhat true), it’s a challenge to get those around us who do not live with it to understand its severity. An allergen to your grandchild is like kryptonite to Superman. One bite (or less!) of the wrong food can lead to an anaphylactic reaction, which happens quickly and, if not treated right away, is potentially fatal. I will say it again: potentially fatal.

Finding Meaning in The Mundane

At the very moment we wake in the morning, human nature is establishing our perspective on the day ahead. It’s almost like a blinking light that goes off and sets us up for the hours moving forward.

7 Ways We Can Help Children Evolve

As grandparents, it is our job to love and support our grandchildren and children through their struggles, but to refrain from solving their problems for them. (No matter how much we are tempted.).

Our goal as grandparents and parents is to encourage our children to think as big as they can, work for nothing less than the best, to have courage and, most importantly, to be kind! Grandparenting is all about contributing to the evolution of relationships.

Yes, you can have a room of your own!

A special feature from Leslie Zinberg & Kay Ziplow, founders Grandparentslink.com

Well, we have all heard of ‘man- caves’, right? That place or room where our most special guys retreat to for a little time out as we say. Maybe you have heard the latest iteration in gender-specific escapes is the ‘she-shed’, or quite simply a place any one of us designates to call our own little escape place. So, ladies, it’s your time, and it’s your turn to create a ‘Me-shed/she shed’, whether it’s a backyard destination or an in-home space. Doesn’t matter- it’s all yours!

Yes, Kids Should Help in the House!

It gives them a sense of teamwork and responsibility…

a special feature from Kay Ziplow & Leslie Zinberg, founders Grandparentslink.com

What’s wrong with the kids helping to pick up after themselves and their mess? Our answer: nothing! Engaging in household activities promotes a sense of accomplishment from a child’s perspective such as, “Look what I did!”; and a sense of involvement with purpose, “Can I help?”.

And yes, water can be a bit of a show-off. It not only covers 71 percent of Earth’s surface, but it also makes up about 66 percent of the human body.
