When a baby is born with a disability, the focus is generally on the baby and his mom and dad. Everyone in the family gathers round to help and support in any way they can.
The baby’s grandparents often play a very important role in the family as they bond with the new baby, help the new parents find the resources they need, and just keep everything moving smoothly.
And yet sometimes we forget to thank the grandparents! Since September is Grandparents Month, I think it’s high time we give them the spotlight! So I’m giving away a copy of the wonderful book In Celebration of Grandparenting that looks at all the ways grandparents can be involved in the lives of their grandchildren who are blind or visually impaired.
The book explains the best ways to interact with children with little or no vision and gives ideas for toys and games you can play. It also discusses what to do about your other grandkids (who may be feeling neglected) and how best to offer your advice to your own children without overstepping your bounds. It’s really a great resource for grandparents!
