Recognizing that visits to grandparents can seem strange or even intimidating to kids, Dr. Ruth offers advice to grandchildren on what they can do to establish and strengthen a relationship with grandparents and other seniors. Recommending shared activities, Dr. Ruth explains how letter-writing, going over family photos, and even showing how to use a computer or program a VCR can improve the ties with grandparents. Dr. Ruth also addresses the needs of children whose grandparents have passed away, offering guidance on building relationships with other older mentors.
