Sometimes young children don't see their grandparents, or older relatives, on a regular basis to be comfortable talking with them. One of the greatest gifts, you can give to your children, is to make situations easier by role-playing. Demonstrate that conversation is give and take. Teach them questions to ask others in order to open the lines of communication.
