The relationship between a grandparent and grandchild is special. To the child, their grandparent is equal parts buddy, parent, teacher, benefactor, and translator. Whether it's a fishing trip, or just a visit to the playground, the child won't see their grandmother or grandfather as the wise old sage they are; when they turn to face their grandparent, they see grandma or grandpa.
For those grandparents who live a significant distance from their grandchildren, finding time to communicate with them can be difficult. In these situations, utilizing the benefits that certain technologies provide can not only help to maintain a healthy grandparent-grandchild relationship, but it can also help it to grow.
