She delights in her own grandchildren but also believes grandparents are in a perfect position to be the friend, affirmer, and nurturer every young child needs. They can pass the things that matter most in life into their lives.

Laura is an LMFT and Advanced Trainer of the Nurtured Heart Approach and focuses her work on Children in foster care. Finding many simple ways to improve the quality of traumatized children's lives, givimg them hope, she was inspired to write the book, Courageous Love: Instructions for Creating Healing Circles for Children of Trauma, especially for grandparents raising grandchildren.
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.

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.
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!

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. As our world becomes increasingly global, grandparents must meet this challenge in order to reap the rewards of a gratifying relationship.
