Staying Connected with Adult Children

Apr 5, 2021

One of the hardest parts of raising kids is letting them go to find their own way. Sometimes that way can take them in many different places, potentially leaving a lack of connection.

But, thanks to all the various modes of technology available to us these days, father and grandfather Ray Taylor says staying connected is a bit easier. It just takes some effort, desire, and flexibility to keep that connection.

Thank you for acknowledging “it’s hard”. Relationships with adult children in different time zones is difficult. Next time we FaceTime I am going to suggest a Zoom family get together. Thank you and God Bless

The last sentence was very telling for me. "it's hard". Our sons has 4 kids, ages 2,4,6/7, 7. We have not seen them in almost a year, pandemic/distance. Our son is going through a nasty divorce with the boys' mother. It's hard not to think that we are not important to our son & grandchildren, especially when they have their faces buried in a tablet, even when we're on facetime with them. Thanks for the sharing.

One way I connect with my two adult children, 1 granddaughter and spouse and one 10 year old grandson is through texting each one every morning. That way we open a door to the day. They do include me in birthdays, holidays and just get-togethers. We live within a 15 mile radius of each other. Family is important to us all

Texting and phone calls keeps me in contact with my 18 grandkids and 6 sons and daughter in laws.
