Would you believe me if I told you there is a field of science about the importance of surprise for making moments more memorable? In the past, I’ve shared ideas to emphasize the importance of surprising and delighting your grandchildren. It is one of the keys to building bonds from a distance.
In this post I want to focus on the simple things you can say from a distance that can have a huge impact. See a list for positive statements you can say, write, email or text to your grandchildren of any age.
My newsfeed is filled with funny and sweet screenshots of virtual family and friend get togethers.
These might not be as exciting as a big fat chocolate Easter Bunny, but they are gifts of connection – and your grandchildren need that now - more than ever.
