Helping kids bond with their grandparents

Although Grandparents Day was Sept. 9, smart parents regularly celebrate the vital role that grandparents play in their family’s life every day.

Susan Bosak, the author of “How to Build the Grandma Connection,” says that children who have strong ties with involved, caring grandparents develop higher self-esteem, and better emotional and social skills, including an ability to withstand peer pressure.

So, if you’re looking for a fun bonding activity for your grandchild, look no further. The West Shore YMCA and Sunrise Senior living are collaborating to bring on the fun. It’s all treats and no tricks at this sticky-sweet dessert party. In this hands-on cooking class, your kiddo will have fun making apple pies and caramel apples!

Join us on Friday, Oct. 29, 4:30-6:30 p.m., for a Dip-Your-Own Caramel Apple Bar and Make/Take Apple Pie. The event will also feature awesome Halloween music and a costume contest for all ages! Cost is $1 per person. For children age 5 and older. Pre-registration required at 440-871-6885.

West Shore YMCA is located at 1575 Columbia Road in Westlake.
