What Makes an Auntie “Savvy?”

Dear Readers,

Being a Savvy Auntie is an inborn talent for most aunts and godmothers, but we also gather some savvy through experience. For my upcoming book: The Savvy Auntie Guide to Life, I want to know:


I'm creating a checklist of ideas that makes us Savvy!

I'll go first: Understanding that even if we Aunties disagree, our nieces and nephews'  parents' rules must be respected. Please add your ideas to the list! They may be included in the book!

    I will follow your line… we have the ability to show our sister/brother and angle about things they are missing. So although their rules are respected, our opinion does count and they are most likely to listen. Most times, to the benefit of our nieces/nephews.
