Dear Mr. Dad: When my kids were young I worked a lot and wasn’t around as much as I wanted to be. But now that I’m retired and a grandfather, how can I make up for it and build strong relationships with my grandkids?
A: There’s no way to make up for lost time, but there are some excellent ways to be an active, involved part of your grandchildren’s life.
- Stay connected. Call, write, email, text, Skype, or twitter. There are tons of ways to keep in touch.
