Grandparents have important gifts to offer -- gifts that cost little or no money, but that build character and create fond memories. Today's fast-paced lives challenge grandparents as they search for ways to show their special kind of love. It is well worth taking the time to think creatively and find ways to enrich the lives of grandchildren. This program discusses the important roles of a grandparent and strategies to enhance the relationship between grandparents and the grandchild, as well as the parents.

This lesson will be presented statewide via the web by a Family Life Extension Educator. The lesson is provided free, but advance registration is required by Friday, Jan. 31.
