Your Grandchildren Need You

As the Summer begins, your grandchildren's schedules change and your's may as well. You may find you are spending a fair part of the Summer with them - 81% of grandparents say they have their grandchildren for part or all of the summer and 70% say they see their grandchildren at least once a week. So, if Summer means more time for you with the grandchildren - or if your grandchildren live far and you will not be seeing more of them, keep what Jay Kesler said in mind . . .  
"Young people need something stable to hang on to - a culture connection, a sense of their own past, a hope for their own future. Most of all, they need what grandparents can give them."
Your grandchildren need YOU. If you are able to spend time with them over the Summer, take every opportunity you have to do so. If you are not able to be there in person, again, take every opportunity you have to connect - through snail mail (this is great for all grandchildren), email, facetime and over the phone. You make a difference. Your grandchildren need you.
