For a variety of reasons I have had no contact with my teenage grandson. I have reconnected with his mother (sons old girlfriend) and she is supportive for me to contact him. He is extremely introverted. I am thinking of writing him a letter to break the ice and leaving the door open for communication. Is this the best way to reach out to him?
Yes Hippie. I'm a great letter writer. I find it easier to put my feelings down on paper. You say your grandson is 'introverted'....in that case, he would probably prefer to read a letter, than to talk. I'm really sorry that things have been difficult.....but there's hope and enough time for you and your grandson to have a loving and wonderful relationship, for years to come. Good luck .
I personally wouldn’t send a letter maybe a card I d go for a short few lines not a big emotional letter or better still WhatsApp or a text or would it be better to invite his mum and him for a coffee on neutral ground he might feel more comfortable with his mum around first time Boys rarely do letters to be honest Don’t expect too much
