GGIdea: Technology can help build relationships with grandchildren. Thank goodness for FaceTime, Skype, and other video chat apps (Viber, Tango, ooVoo, Google Hangouts, and others). Not so long ago, grandparents didn’t have the ability to see grandkids who lived far away. We are now able to keep in touch through video chat. This is a great way to visit; giving the ability to see facial expressions, hear the tone of voice, and interact with loved ones.
