It is the year of the 2010 Grami and Grampi….. Virtual babysitters??

Is it possible that we have witnessed a new evolution? Are we finally able
to bridge the gap between generations? Is that Grampi, there with his new
iPhone application, setting his anti mosquito sound frequency?
Yes! And we must all accept the fact that grandparents have evolved. This
evolution has not only bridged the generation gap, but it has also bridged
the physical distance between far away family members.

One relationship in particular that is benefiting from today’s technology
is that between the grandparent and grandchild. The world of video
conferencing has now enabled grandparents and grandchildren to connect
from miles and miles away. But wait, it doesn’t stop there! With the
proper coaching, grandparents can actually participate in educating their
grandchildren, help build their social skills, and create lasting bonds
that were once a thing of the past.

Imagine the free time that parents now have; time to prepare a meal, read
a book, or lounge on the couch… all the while knowing that the new 2010
Grami and Grampi are creating memorable “visits”  with their grandchildren
seated at the computer screen!

The benefits of online video conferencing are endless. From strengthening
the family support system,  to increasing a grandchild’s learning curve,
to rejuvenating a grandparents heart.  It is the answer to bridging the
gap and making a connection.

This evolution began at Grandchild Connection, a new company on a mission
to connect distant grandparents and grandchildren around the world,  and
whether you are just learning how to surf the Internet, or you are an
expert online social network guru, you can bridge the distance between you
and your grandchild in a matter of minutes. Please visit
www.grandchildconnection.com and help us continue our mission.

And remember… Grandchild Connection turns a distant grandparent into an
instant grandparent :-)
