Kerry Byrne stepped away from academic research to solve a real-world problem: how to form close bonds with grandchildren from far away. Based on research and her own experience as a mother in Dubai, she created The Long-Distance Grandparent.

Whether your grandchildren are halfway around the world or up the street, Kerry gives great insights into:

  • Why grandparents really should “sweat the small stuff.”

  • The importance of maintaining a “cheat sheet.”

  • Finding your own grandparenting style.

  • How to have good play over video.

  • The ultimate secret weapon: snail mail!

Have a listen! And spread the word.
