Making children spend time with grandparents

Many families observe that children don't want to spend time with their grandparents. This can be improved with a few steps.

In this techno savvy and fast-paced world, it becomes difficult to get our children out of screen time and make sure that they spend some quality time with their grandparents. This is required to build warm and loving bonds in the family. Ultimately it is our relationships and family bonding that matters in life.


Tips to increase closeness between your child and their grandparents:


  • Let your child talk to his grandparents. In case they are not staying around, make sure your child talks to them over regular calls. The more they talk, the more they bond. This way they will get to know each other well.
  • If it is possible, take them to their grandparents’ place often and allow them some quality time.
  • You can plan a dinner date for your child and their grandparents. They can visit libraries or parks or some art exhibition together.
  • You can ask your parents to narrate their life stories to your children.
  • Your child and his/her grandparents can cook some dishes together.
  • A perfect picture is also a good option. Ask them to go to a picture studio and get clicked. Get this picture framed and hang it in their room.
  • They can read books to each other. Play chess and some vintage games like snakes and ladders, ludo, carrom etc.
  • Eventually, they will develop a beautiful bond and will be sharing stories soon.
