    On Your Relationship With Your Grandparents (Letter 16)

    in Relationships

    Dear Y.B.M.:

    I hope that you are doing well, today.

    I would like to talk with you about the great value of your grandparents. If your grandparents are living, you have a tremendous treasure in your life. If you have great grandparents you have a greater treasure. Sit down and talk with your grandparents. Some of the most intriguing conversations that I have ever had have been with my grandfather and my two grandmothers. They are my link to the past as to how it really was "back when", and also they are a great help to my knowing who I am and where I came from. Here are some things you can do to reap jewels from your ancestors:

    1. Go and talk with them when they are not preoccupied with other things. Sometimes, visit them alone, if you can.

    2. Listen, Listen, Listen. You are not there to talk that much; you are there to learn all that you can. Your grandparents can really give you an education.

    3. Show respect to them. No matter what kind of lifestyle they have had, there is nothing wrong with saying "Yes, Sir" and "No, Ma'am." They may move slower, talk slower, think slower, have different views about life, but you owe them that respect.

    4. Do not go with the attitude that they can't tell you anything because they did not attain the educational level that you have. They still have more knowledge and wisdom in their little finger than you have in your little brain.

    5. Eat the chicken and leave the bones. Grandparents don't speak ex-cathedra simply because they are grandparents. Everything they say is not necessarily right.

    6. Tell your grandparents you love them and show your appreciation for them.

    Your grandparents can be a great blessing and help to you if you let them.

    Linking up with your personal past,

    The Value of Grandparents

    in Current Events

    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.

    MyNDTALK - Grandparents as Parents

    in Psychology

    By the time one reached the grandparent stage of life - thoughts of spending "golden years" in relax mode is a far away realty for many. 
    Too many households, for too many reasons are occupied by grandparents who are now parents.  Join Dr. Pamela Brewer and Sylvie de Toledo, LCSW for a discussion based on her newest co-authored book, "GrandParents As Parents."
    "...Learn effective strategies to help you cope with the stresses of parenting the second time around, care for vulnerable grandkids and set boundaries with their often-troubled parents, and navigate the maze of government aid, court proceedings, and special education. Wise, honest, moving stories show how numerous other grandparents are surviving and thriving in their new roles."  Amazon

    Grandparents Rights!

    in Women

    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.

    Wicked Insurance Matters with Greg Durette: TURKEY TABLE TALK

    in Family

    What is Turkey Table Talk?  Well, hopefully it's not a long conversation with the big hunk of steaming protein in the middle of your table!

    It is about the importance of seizing the opportunity to have some real, meaningful conversations with the family members you might only see on holidays such as Thanksgiving.  Sure it is good to have all the "catch up" conversations about what people are up to but, what about the stuff that really matters?

    How are our grandparents/parents managing their money these days?
    Are they paying their bills okay?
    Is my aunt a victim of elder financial abuse?
    Have there been any changes in their healthcare?
    Have they had any problems online?
    Do they use support services in the community?
    How are they getting around town?

    These are just some of the things you want and need to know but, somehow never get around to asking.  Sometimes, many red flags are missed that could have otherwise been noticed, thereby preventing a bad situation from developing or getting out of hand.

    So sit back and tune in to learn how to get these important subjects out in the open.  You will be surprised how good everyone will feel about it once you do.
