At GRAND Magazine we are always on the lookout for the best grandparent resources for our readers. In the Sept/Oct issue of GRAND we will again present our picks for the 2014 Top Ten Best Websites for GRANDparents. To give you a little preview of who we are considering, we want to tell you about GrandparentsLink.com
GrandparentsLink.com gives grandparents a distinctive platform for information and resources relating to being a grandparent in this ever-changing socio-cultural environment.
GrandparentsLink, conceived by authors Leslie Zinberg and Kay Ziplow five years ago, gives grandparents tools and access to information on all things having to do with being a grandparent. Editorial content on the site covers a wide variety of topics including: Mindful grandparenting, health and wellness, crafts and entertainment, creative project ideas, places to go, things to see, products to buy and recipes to try.
“I love the pure joy of being a grandparent…my grandchildren have taught me to be present, to be in the moment, to enjoy — and overall, to be mindful. There is nothing better than the giggles and the words and the thoughts and concepts they express,” states Leslie ZInberg, Co-Founder.
“Being a grandparent means that you get to experience another adventure, another part of life’s journey, in another dimension. It takes your breath away to see your own children have children- this experience of the circle of life gives us as grandparents another opportunity in life to enjoy something so precious and unscripted. You hope that you can create bonds with your grandchildren, but really can only do that through respect for the parents, and understanding new trends, or ways of doing things – grandparentslink.com provides that palate.” -Kay Ziplow, Co-Founder.
The site gives grandparents exclusive resources on how to be great grandparents, while staying current on important trends. Zinberg describes the site as, “a solid vehicle for great resources, interest pieces, and information.” Grandparentslink.com allows grandparents the ability to stay in tune with what’s going on within society—keeping them connected to the outside world and their families.
It truly is unlike any other grandparent site on the Internet today. Grandparentslink.com is personal, fresh, engaging and passionate, and most importantly the information comes from the hearts and souls of real grandparents.
