From Cradle to the Gray.

Grandma complete on the job training.

Grandma complete on the job training.

  • 1. From the highchair to teenager eat at the kitchen table together. No TV on, no radio, no noise. It's quiet. Now just talk about your day to one another.

  • 2. I know we are all really busy. Your child wants to talk to you. Stop and listen. Your child is more important.

  • 3. Write down the really cute things your young child said to you like my daughter at age 4 - I said "why are you pulling at your foot? She said, "I want to take my foot off because it really hurts". Now she is a adult and we go over these cute sayings.

  • 4. When your teenage mood changes just don't always say it is just hormones. Investigate every time.

  • 5. At least once a week go out to eat with one child at a time with one parent at a time. Just the two of you.

  • 6. Visit grandparents as much as possible. They've got the love for that grandchildren and they've got the wisdom for the parents.

  • 7. Grandparents have grey hair because they have completed their on the job training of children. Ask their advice.

  • 8. From the time the child taste food make it healthy food. Obesity is very serious in all of us. Eat fruit, vegetables and non fried foods. Develop taste buds early of good foods.

  • 9. Take children to Sunday School. They must learn good morals. No better place to start than Sunday school and Church as they grow up.

  • 10. Pray for your children every day. Pray for their future, their safety, their health, their happiness and to be a example in their lives.

Grandma's Parenting Tips!
by: Annie Desantis

Thanks Donna,
Glad to see you made it back! Love your tips, and as a Grandma myself of course I have to agree Grandma's have loads of parenting tips to share. However sometimes our kids just have to figure stuff out for themselves! So hard to zip our lips when we are SURE we have a better way!

I like your tip about spending special time with just one child at a time. This tip can make a HUGE difference in a relationship.

Good luck with your entry!
Annie D :)

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
