Today, we’re talking to Suzanne Stevenson from the Parenting Center about grand-parenting. Did you know that the average person becomes a first-time grandparent at 47? And some surveys show that as many as 15% of grandparents are the primary caregiver and/or are raising their grandchildren on a full-time basis.

Lydia Harris is the author of Preparing My Heart for Grandparenting. As an author, Lydia's a contributor of recipes to Focus on the Family's Clubhouse magazines for children. Her recipes are developed and tested with her grandchildren. Join us as we talk about the joys of grandparenting during the summer months when grandparenting can bless the family and be a special opportunity to pour love and influence into our children's children.
Our guest, Holly Strum, Coordinator of Government services for developmentally disabled (children and adults), in Cincinnati, Ohio, and a grandmother of two with another on the way. An interesting aspect of this relationship is the many opportunities it has provided both families with friendships that have become "family" and the inherent richness in learning about a different faith/culture from an inter-faith marriage.

Our guest, Naomi Berman, senior psychoanalyst, gestalt therapist, and grandmother of five, will talk about her experience as a grandmother, focusing on maintaining regular contact with grandchildren from a distance.

This month, we will explore the special blessings and challenges grandparents experience and how we, as parents, can have a mutually supportive relationship.
My special guest will be Dr. Ruth Nemzoff, adjunct assistant professor of interdisciplinary studies at Bentley College in Massachusetts, and author of the book, Don't Bite Your Tongue: How to Foster Rewarding Relationships with Your Adult Children.
Ruth and I will discuss topics such as: why grandparents and parents need to maintain a good relationship; how to deal with differing parenting philosophies; when to agree to babysit, and what to do if your adult children get angry when you can't; when grandparents should intervene in the parenting of their grandchildren; rights of grandparents in cases of divorce; and as always, your LIVE questions!
