IT IS OFTEN SAID THAT PARENTING IS THE TOUGHEST JOB THERE IS.


That’s why we developed this email series on proven parenting principles from our experts at Boys Town. These principles work just as well for grandparents as parents, and can help you be better prepared to address common situations with your grandchildren when they’re in your care.

Get your first lesson today by telling us where we can send it.

Each week, you’ll receive information and advice on a specific parenting principle, a teaching activity that you and your grandchild can work on together, and a strategy you can add to your grandparenting toolbox.

Here are some of the lessons we’ll cover:

  • How to give effective praise
  • How to protect your grandchildren by teaching them how to protect themselves
  • How to prepare your children for real-life situations
  • How to set boundaries and expectations
  • The keys to good communication

For most grandparents, not every situation or opportunity to use these parenting strategies will occur when you are with your grandchildren. But don’t let that stop you from adopting all of them. Having them handy when you need them can help make visits by the grandchildren more pleasant for everyone.

As an added bonus, you will automatically be signed up for our monthly eNewsletter. Boys Town has been working with kids for a century, and we have taken what we've learned and developed parenting advice and tools that you won't find anywhere else.

While that may be true, being a grandparent might run a close second.
