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!
DC REAL TALK LIVE RADIO SHOW w/CRYSTAL, KELSI, DAVID & DUAL
TOPIC: “WHEN THE GRANDPARENTS BECOME THE PARENTS” – What is the deal with these young people these days? They wouldn’t listen when we told them about abstaining and using protection, now they have this child that they want us to raise for them. They had this child, but they still want to go out and party, not so when we were coming up. If we made our bed hard we had to lie in it. What’s crazy is many of us have taken the weight of responsibility off of them while they go out and make more children for us to take care of. Join us this coming Tuesday evening at 7pm (PST), 8pm (MST), 9pm (CST) 10pm (EST) as we discuss this topic. You can listen and call in from anywhere in the world by phone (646) 721-9565 or by internet.

The number of grandparents raising their grandchildren has been skyrocketing in recent years. Grandparents have already done their job of raising kids, yet the love they have for the children of their own children is so great that they give up those “golden years” of basking in retirement, and go back to helping with homework, attending school meetings, throwing kid birthday parties and feeling exhausted too much of the time. Many grandparents also face additional issues, such as grief in themselves and their grandchildren because something has happened to the parents of those grandchildren, rendering them unable to continue to parent their children. There are also financial hardships, legal hassles, acting-out children, technology and faster-paced living. Sylvie De Toledo saw all this and created a way to help. Meet Sylvie and three grandmothers she has helped, as they share their struggles, challenges and victories. Click To Visit the site.
