SORT BY Relevancy
How many times have you heard a Christian who was raised in a non-Christian home explain his / her faith by saying, "I had a praying grandmother?"
Studies reveal the enormous influence grandparents have on their grandchildren. One study concludes that spending time wtih a grandparent is linked to more pro-social behavior and fewer behavior problems among adolescents. Other studies show that the stronger the ties with grandparents, the less likely children were to develop significant psychopathology in later life. Adults who have had strong relationships with grandparents tend to be much more positive to the value and importance of older citizens.
With that in mind, radio host Joyce Oglesby has written a novel about how grandparents can pass on values to grandchildren and how our choices can effect future generations. She'll chat about that on The River today. Don't miss it.

Grandparents Rights are not automatically guaranteed! We, at Tomatoes In the Trenches were shocked to learn this. Grandparents in the U.S. do have rights and can seek visitation with grandchildren, but those rights are vulnerable and vary from state to state. Understanding your basic rights can help ensure that your relationship with the grandchildren doesn't suffer. Our guest today Susan Hoffman, is the creator and director of ADVOCATES FOR GRANDPARENT GRANDCHILD CONNECTION and author of the new book “A Precious Bond”, how to preserve the Grandparent-Grandchild relationship. She also sponsored a bill in California on behalf of Grandparents Rights and it became law in 2007. Susan Hoffman is quite a force. Join us on May 23rd at 2PM EST as Susan Hoffman shares her experience and expertise on the topic of how grandparents can sustain those precious bonds under a variety of experiences and circumstances. It promises to be a very informative and enlightening show.

Think about what it would be like on your job, if you had been given a huge project to do, did it and did it well, and then thought you’d have some time to sit back and relax, enjoying your accomplishments and taking time to appreciate your past efforts. But just as you sit down, cup in hand, to talk with your friends and relax, your boss comes along and tells you there is another huge project you must now undertake, no matter how tired or deserving of rest you are! That’s what has happened for the people we’re celebrating on our September 5 show, Grandparents, who have already done the huge job of raising their children, now stepping up to their second huge job, that of raising their children’s children! Elaine Williams calls this Sacred Work; and we’re going to find out, together, why she calls it that. Whether you’re a grandchild, a parent, or a grandparent or great-grandparent, this show is relevant to your life! Come, join us!
