How to be the Best Granddaughter – 7 Ways to Strengthen Your Relationship
This article will help you grow closer to your grandma by doing more FOR her. It is probably the easiest out of the three parts. Purchase something for her, send something to her like a plant or bread basket, mail her a nice “Thinking of You” card, write her a long letter or shoot her an email, or run an errand for her.
This is just one example that you will attain from the articles in this hub on grandmothers, so read on to learn more about this topic.
This part (doing thing for her) is probably easier than the others
“Why is this hub different than the others? Why is it easier?” You may be asking. This list should answer that question.
This part is possibly the cheapest to do if you hand-make whatever you plan to give her (the part you are reading now).
What can you do FOR her?
This Part works best if you choose to do something physical or emotional for her, like taking her to the store, will lead you closer without breaking your bankroll, and without spending too much time if you short on a schedule.
Out of all of the options, she will most likely wish to just spend time with you. However, if you just don’t have the time, then send her a special gift like a box of goodies; that way she will know you are thinking of her out of the blue.
Finally, learning from her may be the most difficult to do, because it not only takes a huge block of time to do, but you almost have to make plans, motivate her to go to a place where she can teach you, if the location is not in her or your home.
So check those articles out once you are done reading this one. This is Part One, a summary of the other three. Part Two explains how to get closer to your grandmother by doing more FOR her (this article that you are reading). Part Three contains ideas on how to do more WITH her in order to strengthen your bond you currently with her. Finally, Part Four helps you uncover ways that you can learn more FROM her starting right now!
Watch her tear up when you give her a personalized item, something that she will love. This act of kindness can often benefit you more than her! This is a very rewarding gift for you to give; it’s rewarding when you get this reaction from anyone! A simple example might be embroidered table cloths for her big Thanksgiving dinner.
Do you have a famous dish that you cook for others? Have her watch you make it so that you can learn from her tips as you cook it next to her. Consider using her tips and cooking tricks. The other option is to just cook it yourself and take it over to her so that you can do something sweet for her. Anything that you do for her she will cherish. It can be as easy as a short text or phone call. Be creative!
