Your Grandchildren Still Need You and You Can Still Be There for Them

Recorded May 7 2020

All of a sudden grandparents are following public health rules that keep us away from grandchildren. We miss them and worry that this precious connection may be in danger. It’s not. Jane Isay, author of Unconditional Love: A Guide to Navigating the Challenges of Being a Grandparent Today, will lead a conversation about the difference between geographical and emotional distance. She’ll discuss the shift in power we have experienced and remind us how important we are to those grandkids. We grandparents can provide safety, security, and history to help the children deal with illness and uncertainty.
