Encourage Your Grandchildren With - You Did It!

Linda Ranson-Jacobs is one of our Grandmas with Heart and she is the creator of Divorce Care 4 Kids. She absolutely knows how to serve and help children and parents who go through divorce.

But her wisdom is not only for those who go through divorce. She has much wisdom for all children, parents and grandparents, too. On her blog last summer, Linda wrote a powerful article about how grandparents, and grandbuddies, are able to make a significant difference in the life of a child. She said they are able to be the champions, cheerleaders and mentors in the life of children - you will find her full post at this link - definitely read and share it.

Linda quoted Casey Gwinn and said; "for every child, having a person who passionately believes in, loves, and supports them changes them and their outcomes in life." She also quotes educator Rita Pierson in a TED Talks Education; “Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.

So, look for opportunities to tell your grandchildren, "You did it!" Encourage them. Be their cheerleaders. Be the person they are able to count on to encourage them. 

We grandmas and grandpas absolutely will never give up on our dear grandchildren. We most certainly are able to help these children we love be the best they are able to be. Take time today to encourage your grandchildren - it does matter.
