A Letter From a Grandma
Dear fellow grandparent,
I love being a grandma! It can be the most rewarding feeling in the world knowing that you have helped shape the life of a grandchild for the better. That being said, being a grandparent isn't always easy, especially in today's rapidly changing world. New technology can be a blessing and a curse. On one hand, some of this new technology is really exciting because I learn new ways to maintain strong relationships with my grandkids. On the other hand, it's really exhausting and daunting trying to keep up with it all by myself. I find it easier and much more enjoyable when I have someone with me who understands it and is patient enough to explain it to me. Fortunately, I have a few people like that in my life. One of them is a young man named Aaron who created GrandparentsAcademy.com.
Now if you are like me, you may wonder what a young man like Aaron is doing creating an online academy designed to help grandparents. He's just a kid! What does he know about being a grandparent? The answer may surprise you. Let me tell you a little bit about Aaron.
Aaron is an intelligent, creative, caring, and spiritual young man with a desire to make the lives of the people he meets better and more rewarding. If you ask him how he became this way, he'll tell you that his grandparents had a major impact on his life. And this is true. How do I know? Because I am one of the grandparents he likes to talk about. He calls me "Grandma Grace".
It goes without saying that bragging about their grandchildren comes natural to us grandparents, but I can tell you with complete confidence that Aaron is a very good teacher. He has taught me how to import photos into my e-mail, how to use Facebook, how to text on my cell phone and much more. It's the character traits mentioned above combined with his love for helping grandparents that make Aaron unique. Aaron has a gift for helping others around him live better and more rewarding lives. And that is what makes GrandaparentsAcademy.com a unique and valuable resource for grandparents like us.
No, Aaron is not a grandparent. That's quite obvious just by looking at him. But he does share the same desire that all of us grandparents have. Aaron wants to create what he calls a "legacy of loving and learning". He knows how valuable this sort of legacy is because that is what his grandparents, including my husband, "Grandpa Grace", have left for him. Not only does he have a desire to create his own legacy, but he also has the desire to help us grandparents create our own legacy of loving and learning for our loved ones. That is why he built GrandparentsAcademy.com. It is his desire to help combined with his character traits and communication and technology skills that make Aaron (and GrandparentsAcademy.com) a valuable resource for us grandparents.
GrandparentsAcademy.com provides access to information and training on the subjects which are most applicable to the relationship between themselves and their grandchildren. To speak plainly, it's all about creating a legacy of loving and learning. And when it comes down to it there is no place on the internet more suited to helping you with creating that legacy than GrandparentsAcademy.com. But don't just take a proud grandma's word for it, take a look for yourself. You won't regret it.
My best to you and yours,
