Tips For A Great Grandparent–grandchild Bond

ParentCircle

Being a grandparent is very different from being a parent. For starters, they no longer shoulder the primary responsibility for a child, for example her health or well-being or education. But, that does not mean that grandparents are not involved in the lives of their grandchildren.

In fact, compared with parents, children share a much deeper and closer bond with their grandparents. There are many reasons for this such as spending more quality time with each other, conversing more often, willingness to listen and so on.

But, with changing times, the role grandparents need to play and the way they need to deal with their grandchild is also changing. So, grandparents have to be in tune with the needs of today. They need to understand what the digital-age grandchild really needs.

Flipping through the pages of our Clipbook will help give an idea of how grandparents can bond with their grandchild.
