I have been asked to speak in Sacrament meeting or when I need to present a lesson, I ask one (sometimes more) of my grandkids's opinions, and thoughts on the subject. This gives them an opportunity to think about and discuss gospel , social, and other topicsl They freely give me fresh insights. I take notes and ask for more info and clarification. I actually learn a lot about what is going on in their world!
I give very little or no advice, I just ask the right questions and we explore the subject and learn together.
Thank you for great advice. All of our grandchildren are a couple thousand miles away. We get there twice a year, but do you have ideas on how to build relationships long distance, besides Skype?
What a great article. I had a very special relationship with my Grandmother growing up and looked forward to that relationship with my grandsons. They are now 16 and 13. They have brought a tremendous joy to my life.
My grandsons are all under 5 years old. When We are together I spend time playing whatever games they want to play and listen to what they say. My oldest grandson likes to make up names for me like 'Dramma' and now it's 'Grammaster.' I love these times together and relish each moment.
We have served several missions so that not only will we be serving the Lord, but we will be an example to our whole family how important missions are. (Elder Bednar stressed that when he met with young couples in Houston last summer)
I love the Eyres. I started reading their books 30 years ago and now have grandchildren too. Thanks for this!
