Overview

Long-distance grandparenting means a lot of lost opportunities to experience the joy of each special new day, each new growth stage, each new accomplishment of our beloved grandchildren. But distance in miles does not have to mean distance in feelings. There are ways to build close relationships that do not depend on living down the block. This guide for long-distance grandparents is a great source of information and inspiration for those grandparents who live far from their grandchildren and who hope to be more than just occasional visitors and long-distance gift givers at holiday time.

Author and teacher Selma Wassermann shares her many helpful ideas for staying in touch: using the telephone, the written word, family stories, photographs, and the tremendous potential of the Internet to show how close bonds are forged, even across long distances. Included, also, are suggestions for distant grandchildren with special needs and abilities, information about travelling with grandchildren, and home visits. She also has compassionate advice for grandparents on such tough topics as the death of a grandparent, rebellious teens, and family favoritism.
