Create meaningful and fun moments with your grandchild so you can build strong bonds - no matter the distance.

Make sure you always have something to send, to say and to play! 

You are worried your grandchild won't know you or you won't know them.

 

You are determined to build strong bonds but the distance is getting in the way.

 

You might have this lingering feeling that you should do​ a little more.

 

​Some days you think it will be fine but other days you get a little overwhelmed with the sadness and heartache. 

 

Sound familiar?

 

You are in the right place.

is a one-of-a-kind online monthly membership designed with and for grandparents to help you create meaningful connections and memorable moments with your grandchildren so you can nurture strong bonds that will last a lifetime.

It’s for grandchildren aged 2 to 10.

Because grandparenting from a distance IS different. 

It's heartbreaking for many and not the way you envisioned being a grandparent.

You are proud of your own children for following their dreams but the distance is hard. Especially now! But here is what I know...

 

Many of you have already rolled up your grandparenting sleeves. 
 

You know that like any relationship you’ve nurtured in your life, it takes time and commitment. 
 

 

Imagine fighting the distance with love, creativity and a plan for connection

 

A place to be inspired and intentional – to be curious about what more you can do to stay connected.

 

And you are committed to creating moments and memories.

 

Of course, this takes consistency, inspiration and being intentional.

 

 

A place that will save you time so you can have deeper and more engaging moments with your grandchildren.

 

A place filled with new, fresh and imaginative ideas to stay connected - so you can spend your time actually focused on being in the moment - and having fun.

 This is exactly what is happening inside The Long Distance Grandparent Society right now! 

 

Here is what members are saying.... 

The September Connection Pack is epic!  

Kerry is always open to ideas, and so responsive to requests for advice. It is helpful to hear other grandparents have similar challenges and delights. 

The Long Distance Grandparent Society

is a real live thing!


Nana to 3 in the same province

I joined to get ideas to connect with my grandchildren.  The engaging, imaginative activities were far more than I expected, and they've definitely deepened the connection with my grands. What's more, the other grandparents have been a wonderful source of support and ideas. I no longer feel I'm the only one who never gets to see her grandchildren. That alone is worth the price.

 

Nana to 3 in a different State

 I thought I was already quite inventive but thanks to Kerry's Connection Packs, I’m regularly introducing new fun to our video calls and snail mail. I especially like the monthly zoom chats with members from around the world.  Coming together like this is not just fun, informative and supportive, the connection it offers is also quite liberating.  Being a long distance grandparent no longer feels quite so lonely.

While Kerry's free weekly newsletter provides great tips, her monthly Connection Pack, follow-up emails, and video meetings include resources and motivation for putting these ideas into practice.  Plus, she provides a ton more of great ideas and the opportunity to share personal stories with other  grandparents during our monthly group chat on Zoom.  We are certainly happy camper members of the Long Distance Grandparent Society.

Hello

I’m Kerry, Founder of The Long Distance Grandparent.

I LOVE working with grandparents, helping you nurture strong bonds with your grandchildren. After a 20-year career as a care and connections research scientist, I switched gears when I saw the need for practical, fun and meaningful ideas to stay connected to grandchildren. 

 

Our family knows what you are experiencing. My children’s grandparents live in other countries. We only get to see them twice a year. And now, with the pandemic, even less. 

 

But because I’m the parent, I see what works with my children. And because I’m a researcher, I’ve engaged with hundreds of long distance grandparents and  – to find out what works (and what doesn’t). 

I created The LDG Society to help grandparents so you

  • Always have something to send, to say and to play.

  • Never feel alone in this journey.

  • Spend time in the moment instead of searching for ideas.

  • Feel inspired to stay connected (even when you don't get much back).

What's included in The LDG Society?

Monthly Connection Pack

It's like a digital subscription box. But delivered to your inbox each month. It is filled with done-for-you snail mail to send, tons of things to talk about and easy games and activities to play.  

 

The Connection Pack sets you up for meaningful and fun connections every month. 


  • Interactive Printables 

    These aren’t your average printables. Based on my tried and tested Connection Loop™, each one is designed specifically to PROMPT connection. They make perfect snail mail, with lots of options to choose from each month. If you have multiple grandchildren, no problem – print out multiple copies! 

  • Virtual Grand Dates

    A series of activities and quick start games specifically for video chatting. Grandparents love these because they are step-by-step and imaginative but don't require 3-ring circus performance abilities!

  • Moments that Matter Sheets

    This isn't about recording your life story for them. It's about recording your life's relationship with them. Each month, you take 10 minutes to fill these out, and you save them for your grandchild. They will be able to look back on these and see how much they meant to you.

  • Connection Boosters 

    These look a little different each month depending on the theme of the month. The boosters are designed to make sure you always have something to say, questions to ask or topics to bring up.

But there’s more, because I hear from grandparents who have good connection intentions but need a gentle nudge. 
 

I want to make sure you actually do the things you want to do to build bonds.

 

Also, grandparenting from a distance can be emotional - there are days when it can feel like no one else truly gets it. 

That’s why, as a member you have access to:

Monthly Grand Chats

Grandparents asked for this to be added to the membership. Each month we get together on Zoom and talk about our wins and the challenges too. We laugh together - and sometimes cry - but this time together is important to feeling less alone in this journey.  

Guest Experts

Monthly guest expert interviews and workshops on topics grandparents care most about. For instance,  how to partner with parents,  share your values and be a part of building self-esteem, resilience and empathy in your grandchildren . These are recorded so watch at your convenience! 

Members Only FaceBook Group

This is a group of grandparents who help each other along this journey with solutions and ideas. We share and celebrate the successes and support each other through hard times. Not on FaceBook? No problem, just email anytime for help. 

Did someone say BONUSES? 

Every now and then, I send out a BONUS to help members out with a specific challenge.
