Everyone loves spending time with their family, but what about when one of your family members is far away? Here are some ideas from your friends at DealDash.
If you are missing a family member the emotions can be a little tough to deal with. It’s especially difficult if you are missing your child or your parent – someone who you are used to spending every day with, enjoying their company. The most important thing to remember is that it’s okay to feel a little sad when you think about them and miss them.
If the person is far away but still has access to their cell phone, computer, laptop, iPad, or other electronic device it will make things easier on everyone if you both learn how to do video chats with each other. If you have an iPhone or iPad then FaceTime should already be installed. If you have an android, or if you are using a computer, then there are a few different options such as Skype or Google Hangouts. There are lots of different options out there, and most of them are free to use. Video chatting isn’t exactly like having your loved one by your side, but it’s a great solution to be able to “see” them and hear them, versus just chatting on the phone. At my house we FaceTime Grandma and Grandpa every night while I am making dinner, so the kids can have a great relationship with them even though we live a few hours drive apart.
If you are feeling a little lonely for your family, why not send them a quick text? If you can’t think of anything to say other than “I miss you.” How about a quote? I found a lot of nice quotes just by Googling “Missing Family” such as “Being a family means you are a part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life” If you sent your Mom or your Grandma a quote like that, I bet they would be thrilled!
If you are missing your family but don’t have a way to Skype or Facetime with them, DealDash can help. DealDash always has the latest iPads, iPods, laptops, and cell phones available for auction.
