We all have experiences & gain knowledge that turns into wisdom. Grandparent power aims to explore the wisdom, experience & knowledge that grandparents have to offer. Do you struggle to keep up with the lightning speed at which your next generation grandchildren seem to moving through this world? Do your grandchildren struggle to stay connected to you when you aren’t part of their digital world? Imagine if you could bridge the communication gap & step across the invisible lines separating you from your children & grandchildren. Grandparent Power is a program to explore the benefit of our experiences, the wisdom we want to share & the messages that need to be heard. We will discuss ways to communicate with relevance to a generation who are growing up communicating through cyber space. We will also explore topics relevant to the mature stages of life. Every senior deserves to graduate to each stage with grace, dignity & understanding.

Free! No registration necessary!
