    To the Nana Who Can't: How you can be an amazing grandma, regardless of circumstances

    The Studio 5 Nanahood is a special place where we celebrate and share ideas for grandmas. We chat about crafts with grandkids, Nana camp activities, and ways to stay healthy as we grow older. But we're aware that much like motherhood, there is a group of nanas watching who would love to do so many of the positive, fun ideas shared on the show - but you can't. Physically, you can't play with your grandkids at the park. Financially, you can't buy that lavish gift. Mentally, you can't remember every child's and grandchild's birthday. We get that, and you're loved just the same.

    Studio 5 Parenting Contributor Heather Johnson speaks to the nana who can't. Here's the key takeaway: limitations don’t define your ability to be an amazing grandma.
