How Grandparents and Grandchildren Stay in Touch

Young girl talks about what she loves about her grandparent.

Grandparents Day Should be Every Day

Although National Grandparents Day is officially the first Sunday after Labor Day, we at GreatCall hope that grandparents and grandchildren can get in touch every day! We understand the importance of children connecting with their grandparents and making the most of the wealth of advice and knowledge that older generations offer. Today, the 7,000,000 grandparents in the U.S., who are an average age of 48 years old, enjoy several activities including: exercising, using social networking sites, and talking to their grandchildren on a cell phone.

What Grandkids Love About Their Grandparents

We recently asked a group of amazing grandkids to tell us what they love about their grandparents, how they spend their time together, and most importantly, how they stay in touch. It’s no surprise that for the younger generations, texting and video chatting is the preferred method to reach out. Luckily, our easy-to-use Jitterbug cell phones have the right features to help grandparents and grandchildren stay connected with the younger generation. Take a moment to watch our interviewed grandkids share their favorite things about their beloved grandparents, whether they are called “Grammy,” “Nana,” or “G-Daddy!”

    I think the word grandma should be changed for the same reason that this generation is younger now and the word grand ma sounds very old.

    I have grandchildren that don’t care about me because their mother doesn’t like me. I never hear from them and it breaks my heart because I love them.Especially around the holidays.

    My granddaughter who is an adult now calls her other gma “the card grandmother” because her only contact is a card once or twice a year. Many times during her life she really could have welcomed some help, which her mom and I have provided, but her birth father and his mother never have. He never paid a cent in spite of “child support enforcement”. Now her card grandmother has a snit fit because granddaughter has chosen not to continue contact. Ridiculous. It is supposed to be about the child, not the adult.
