#34: What Grandparents Need to Know

Grandparents, aunties, uncles, extended family all play an important role in your baby’s life. Babies have a way of bringing a new dimension to families and learning what works for your family takes a little time (and effort).
Research shows that grandparent relationships provide many benefits for children – they have a stronger support system, are more resilient, less prone to depression and best of all, they have the security that comes from being loved.
In this episode we take a look at 3 ways to build healthy relationships between you, your baby and the extended family – and grandparents, you’ll hear how you can best support your adult kids and their children.

One last thing. I spend time each morning in meditation and would love to pray for you, your child or whatever’s on your heart. Simply email me and let me know how to pray. It can be as simple just your name or you can give a short explanation. Either way you can trust that I will do it. No strings attached, no follow up or anything, just a quiet way for me to support you in your parenting journey. Because no one needs to feel alone. 🧡
