The Grandparent Advantage: Improve Your Grandchild’s Education


According to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than 28 million school-age children have parents who are working several hours after their children get home from school each day. With so many families living on a fast-paced schedule, more grandparents are finding they have an excellent opportunity to make a significant impact on a grandchild’s education.

Your grandchildren don’t learn quite the same way you or your children did in school. With so much technology incorporated into their daily lives, they want--and learn from--highly engaging, interactive, and educational media. While television and video games keep children entertained, providing them with educational products that supplement their school curriculum and learning habits is the perfect way for you to be actively involved in your grandchild’s education.

As a grandparent, the power is in your hands —literally. With just one click of the mouse or stroke of the touchpad, you can provide highly interactive, engaging, and educational software, workbooks, and flash cards for your grandchildren that will supplement their current school curriculum and learning habits, while keeping them entertained for hours. Entertaining and educating your grandchildren has never been as simple and fun!
