    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.

    These days most parents are busy working at full time jobs to maintain the 2 cars, big house and pay the bills.  When children come along parents don't always shift priorities to nurture the children with consciousness.  This is why grandparents have to participate more to bring the wisdom, over/innerstanding and knowledge that may be lacking in a family where both parents work.  Part of the solution is for grandparents to turn off the TV and give those grandchildren you full attention.  This podcast will discuss other important solutions to overcome NDD (Nature deficit disorder)

    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.

    Milling About with Patrick Wilson & Paul Wilson

    in Entertainment

    Patrick Wilson and Paul Wilson join host Robin Milling to talk about their film Big Stone Gap. It was a labor of love for the Wilson brothers who's family roots are steeped in the small Virginian town. As children they recall spending summers with their grandparents who lived in Big Stone Gap. They tell Robin it was bittersweet to return to the place of their fondest childhood memories to shoot the movie, even staying in the house where they summered. Patrick says, 'It's really been the most personal project I've ever been a part of.' Paul tells Robin the story of how the Wilson family has been immortalized in the town with 'Wilson Road,' and the 'Paul J. Wilson' bridge named for their grandfather. In fact their grandparents were friends with the parents of writer/director Adrianna Trigiani who waited until Patrick was old enough to play the part, to make the film of her book.

    Patrick and Paul's collaboration goes beyond movies, as they also have a band called The Wilson Van along with their brother Mark playing renditions of Van Halen songs.

    Big Stone Gap also stars Ashley Judd, Whoopi Goldberg, Jane Krakowski, Jenna Elfman, and John Benjamin Hickey.
