When possible, start engaging the child directly..Use the available technology to engage your grandchild in creative activities. For example, you can play online games with your grandchild, start an online book club or fantasy sports league with them, or share videos of you or your grandkids enjoying a favorite hobby. Try exchanging jokes or favorite family recipes via email, or have them scan or fax report cards or pictures they’ve drawn.
This reminds me of one of our little girls. She cannot wait to help my Mother any way that she can. She walks with her up the stairs, reads to her every day, sits for hours on end talking up a storm in her bedroom, sings songs with her, and to hear the two of them laugh is one beautiful memory!!!!!!
