Fix Broken Relationships with Grandparents

Thursday, March 5, 2009

Our busy lives can lead to many things like going to parties, playing sports, and sometimes even doing homework. However, one thing our hectic schedules don't lead up to is contacting our grandparents. You may not see them as the most exciting people in the world, and that can become an issue! Read on for information on mending your relationship.
Get to know them a little better. I don't mean sitting and listening to their World War 2 stories, because not everyone is a good actor...if you know what I mean. While you are faking listening to Grandpa's reenactment of the battle, his feelings could get really hurt. Instead, talk about things that catch your interest. Get to know them as they are NOW. Does Grandma like classic movies that you enjoy? Does Grandpa love basketball? Find out!
Make a plan. Maybe your plan includes contacting them once a week about what you are up to by phone, and once every two weeks you send pictures by email. Come up with something that works for everyone and stick to it. You will find that if you set up a pattern of calling at a certain time, they will start looking forward to that time, and when you forget, they will be very let down.
Get your friends involved. Maybe your friends can bring their grandparents over, and you all can do something fun and safe together. You could have a movie night or look at family albums together.
Talk about YOU! Here's that rare case where you can go on and on about yourself. Grandparents love their grandkids, so if you can talk about your role in the school play, or even your new soccer ball, they will go nuts for it.
Thank your Grandparents. Many elders feel unappreciated. Don't let this happen to your loved ones.

Be positive!
Talk to your parents about your plans.
