Some grandparents are having a difficult time connecting with their grandchildren. If you are among them, read these several tips. We present ways for you to bond with the next generation regardless of their age.
Teach Your Grandkids Something
Times are quite different now than from when you were young. Your grandkids will most likely never get to experience the things you loved during your youth – so, tell them what life was like back then. You can introduce to them to games you used to play as a kid, or even show them movies you enjoyed watching.
Let Your Grandkids Teach You About Something They Love
Now it is your time to listen. Ask them about the games they like to play. These days kids, usually play games on their PC. Why not try it with them? They all seem to be tech savvy and you can ask them everything you need to know in order to stay up to date with technology.
Ask Your Grandkids to Sleep Over
In fact, invite your whole family to sleep over. This way you can talk for longer and it is a great way to connect with the whole family, across each generation.
Have Dinner Together
If they don’t live too far away, organize a dinner for everyone once a week. You can even cook together! Cooking can be a fun way to connect with your grandkids. Let them choose a recipe, buy the necessary ingredients, and let the fun start.
Go for a Walk Together
Find a nice place for walking. It can be a river bank, beach, a park – anything. Summer, fall, winter, spring – the season doesn’t matter. Every season is beautiful in its own way. Walking is good for everyone and is one of the best ways to get conversation flowing.
