Hints & Tips
How do you write granddaughter birthday wishes?
Granddaughters are special — that goes without saying, I guess. And I don't think I really need to tell you just how special they are. You know more than I do. I'm not a grandfather yet.
But, as a writer, I do need to remind you that their "specialness" should have an impact on how you write your granddaughter birthday wishes.
Unfortunately, there's no "one size fits all" kind of birthday wishes for granddaughters.
So how should you proceed? The first thing you need to do...
You have to take a closer look at your granddaughter and ask yourself: what type of birthday greeting will truly make her feel special?
Sure, you can just write a standard (read: generic) birthday verse and be done with it. That's the safe, easy way out. But it won't make your granddaughter feel so special.
Generally speaking, the young ones care more about the gift you'll give them, so stick to kid-oriented granddaughter birthday wishes. With the teenage ones, you have to take that "closer look" I mentioned above.
Basically, you need to realize that your granddaughter communicates on a whole different level than you, so knowing how to relate to her may help you craft perfect granddaughter birthday wishes that will do the trick.
To help you, I found an article with tips on talking to your teenage granddaughter. The tips may provide you with real insight into her mind, helping you write granddaughter birthday wishes she'll love. Click here to read it.
Now that you have a better idea of your teenage granddaughter's mindset, consider the following hints and tips and I bet you'll be able to creating the right granddaughter birthday wishes for your sweet angel in no time at all.
Your granddaughter birthday wishes should do the following:
Include what's "hot" and exclude what's "not so hot."
Show that you truly listen to her and her needs.
Share a common interest you have with her.
Accept her apology, if you and her had an argument.
Let her know that you've learned important lessons from her.
Show that you know her and what she likes.
Show her that she's always on your mind.
Let the inner grandparent come out if she's the sort who would let you.
Let her know that the little things you do with her are special to you.
With adult grandchildren, the approach you should take is slightly different but essentially the same. To communicate with your adult grandchildren, you should do what grandparents have done with their adult grandsons and granddaughters for decades, according to Support Grandparents Give to Their Adult Grandchildren in The Journals of Gerontology:
"Provide more frequent emotional support to your adult granddaughter, especially when her parents are going through bad times, including listening, advice and companionship. Grandparents experiencing greater affective ties with their adult grandchildren are invested in these ties, regardless of family needs."
How does this advice translate into incredible granddaughter birthday wishes? That's easier than you think.
All you need to do is provide the emotional support that your adult granddaughter needs through sentimental and/or inspirational granddaughter birthday messages.
With your words, show your granddaughter that you listen to her, provide her with your well-earned wisdom and, most importantly, show her how much you love her.
Overall, what’s the best style? Probably a mix of cute and happy...with a touch of the sentimental (and the right amount of pride in everything she does).
Bottom line: Write granddaughter birthday wishes below that best capture your feelings for her, whatever her age, making this child, teen or young adult feel amazing on the best day of the year for her.
