No matter if you're a "newbie" grandparent or an experienced "veteran" grandparent, this group is for you. After 30 years of being a "professional mom", I became a grandparent and realized that I suddenly had a whole new role to learn. Whether you are a long-distance grandparent, or a daily caregiver, everyone can use advice on handling situations unique to being a grandparent.
Whether you are looking for the perfect birthday gift for a 9 year old, have an awesome recipe idea for a finicky 2 year old or are dealing with navigating your way through a difficult family issue, I'm willing to bet that the wonderful men and women on JAP have a bit of wise, tried and true advice to guide you through successfully to the other side.
Let this be a safe-haven to discuss any issue relating to being a grandparent. Fun recipe ideas for children, age appropriate gift ideas, crafts, being the very best long-distance (...or short-distance!) grandparent you can be or talking your way through a difficult family situation, please feel safe and secure talking your way through to a happy ending with the wise and incredible advice of fellow JAP grandparents. Feel free to swap those ideas which were huge successes... and of course, those that were complete flops! =)
We've had a fantastic time, and we would love for you to join us! As always, please be kind, gentle, respectful and non-judgmental. Above all, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
