Is this familiar, “Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house we go”? For most grandparents, we long to leave a legacy by building into the lives of those we love, but long distance grand parenting happens more often a state or even a country away from each other. Long distance relationships are a common thread that runs through the modern family.
Grandparents who live long distances from their grandchildren face a particularly difficult challenge in creating close bonds with their grandchildren, but with a little creativity and taking advantage of today’s technologies, it is easier than ever to remain connected. Now, more than at any time in history, face-to-face conversations are at right at your fingertips. With just a little bit of effort, long distance grandparents can create strong and loving bonds that last a lifetime.
Video chat is an excellent tool for long distance communication. By scheduling a time, weekly or monthly with your grand kids, you can stay involved in their activities and become an important part of their lives. This “virtual” presence is just as valuable as a physical presence as it allows you to watch the children grow-up, be a part of each accomplishment and not be a stranger to them.
Here are some creative ideas that will help you create a lifetime bond with your grandchildren who live afar:
Whether you live hundreds, thousands or even just a few miles away, staying connected with your family brings a joy to life that cannot be replaced with any other relationship. Start a new tradition today and see how quickly those relationships blossom.
