How to send a happy birthday message to a granddaughter
Have your grandchild show you how to communicate online. (NA/ Images)

The relationship between a grandparent and grandchild is an incredibly important one. Grandparents can offer sage advice as well as respite from a child's parents. It may be difficult for grandparents to relate to a young girl or boy as they go through the tumult of high school or puberty. Yet, grandparents still want to be a part of their lives. A grandchild's birthday is always a good time to maintain or re-establish a close relationship.

  1. 1

    Write a Facebook message. If your grandchild is like other adolescents, they are addicted to using the Internet. Try sending your granddaughter a message on Facebook. Without a doubt, she will check her Facebook page on her birthday to find dozens of birthday wishes posted on her wall.

  2. 2

    Send a text. Text messaging is a bit more difficult for older generations -- smaller numbers for weaker eyes is not a good combination. But try texting your granddaughter. Not only are you guaranteed she will read it, but you will come across as hip and cool to your granddaughter.

  3. 3

    Download a free service called Skype on the Internet. This is a video communication program that will allow you to wish your granddaughter a happy birthday face to face no matter where she lives. Open the program and type your granddaughter's user name. Double click the name and a box will pop up; then click on the blue video camera icon. If your granddaughter is online, you can have a video chat and communicate your birthday wishes directly.

Tips and warnings

  • If you're going to text your birthday wishes, don't do it at night because she is probably with her friends celebrating at that time.
