The Hundred-Foot Journey

Long Distance Grandparenting

Family Values: In the classic children’s story, Little House on the Prairie, Laura Ingalls Wilder describes the parting of the Charles Ingalls family from the rest of the clan. “Grandma and all the aunts hugged and kissed them and hugged and kissed them again, saying good-by.” Such was the scene when our family left a major metropolis 13 years ago and headed for the rural countryside – leaving Grandma, Grandpa, aunts, uncles and cousins, 1,000 miles behind.
