I noticed a change in my relationship with my seven year old grandson after covid distancing — wearing masks and keeping away.
I tried hard to reconnect after being vaccinated but felt my efforts were falling flat. Then I figured out how to meet him where he was and connect in a way he would welcome my interest in his new passion.
I took Pokémon tutorials, ordered online starter sets, which led to our first Pokémon battle. He won.
But now my grandson can’t wait until our next card battle. I am still a bit confused but I’m learning the game.
My suggestion – determine your grandchild’s interest and then connect.
