How can grandparents build and maintain their relationships with their grandchildren?

Gramps Jeffrey knows a couple of tricks, which he’s happy to talk about in this episode. He has 4 kids and 6 grandchildren and looks at how the kids are growing up as a baby boomer trying to understand how the world has evolved since he was 3 years old. As the author of the acclaimed business book “The Secrets of Retailing…How to Beat Walmart” and a contributor to The Huffington Post of over 100 articles on how to help the nonprofit world and also help grow small businesses, Gramps’ commentary is quite timely in the challenging world we live in.

He has since jumped from writing about business to writing for children. He will talk about his new book, “I Don’t Want to Turn 3” and the role that grandparents play in the growth of their grandchildren.
