Our monthly one-on-one conversation
This is our monthly one-on-one conversation, and this month, I wanted to be sure to celebrate you, the very cool Grandmother and Grandfather. Yes, I know this is The Cool Grandpa Podcast, but we have some fantastic Grandmothers listening in to keep us honest.
As a grandparent, you matter greatly to your grandchildren’s mental and physical well-being. This statement is true regardless of whether you live 5 minutes from the grandchildren or 5,000 miles away. The fact is that your grandchildren need AND want you to be a part of their lives, yes, even when they are teenagers, and it seems like they couldn’t give you the time of day.
Here are five areas where you can have a direct impact on your grandchildren:
- Unconditional Love
- Adventures and Exploration of the world around them
- Connections and a sense of “place” in the family and world
Grandparents Academy is a great tool to add to your fantastic tool kit. I do have an affiliate relationship with Grandparents Academy. So I want to be upfront and honest with you about my relationship with them. However, even if I didn’t have this relationship, I would still be taking the time to talk to you about Grandparents Week, hosted by Grandparents Academy.
I’m honored to be presenting as part of Grandparents Week about how to turbocharge the grandfathering experience. Grandparents Week is the largest virtual celebration and educational conference for grandparents.
