Here’s a prickly one. Is your grandchild addicted to gaming? When you ask him to stop, if he gets angry or begs for more screen time, he’s showing the classic signs that he’s addicted to technology. Grandparents, you can become a blessing to exhausted parents and the kids who are trapped in a virtual world by providing a genuine substitute.
Take them outside. Show them a world beyond the screen. Plan tactile hands-on activities that engage their curiosity. While parents are the ones who enforce the rules, you have the golden opportunity to bring your grandkids peace, tranquility and to show them a whole new world.
