Trainings: Grandparent & Extended Family

Grandparents: Nurturing Relationships with Grandkids

For centuries, the bond between the oldest and youngest members of families was a given construct and a respected relationship. Today, the demands of contemporary culture – from cell phones and social media to afterschool activities and school pressures – can weaken these bonds. Join us to learn more about societal changes and how to approach them with a spirit of empowerment rather than fear. Get your questions answered. Learn about strategies to strengthen these bonds – regardless of whether your grandchildren are newborns, in school, or launching careers.

Topics include:

  • Understanding the different developmental goals of grandchildren
  • Assuring cultural continuity
  • Engaging with grandkids – near and far, young and “old”
  • Using technology safely and effectively
