time with grandparents

Spending time with grandparents is a great way to strengthen family bonds through multiple generations. There are benefits to having the kids spend time with grandparents alone, without mom and dad tagging along. This is such a special time for kids and grandparents alike. This goes for kids of all ages. I know a boy whose grandmother lived next door to him as a teenager. He would go see her every afternoon. It was a safe place to find love and acceptance. A place to vent. A place to talk when it was hard to talk to mom and dad. Just the other day, my mom took my nearly thirteen year old to the park just to spend time talking and building the bonds. Sharing time with grandparents is an important part of family life.
