GRANDPARENTING GROUP — NEW SCHEDULE

AARP research says: Grandparents remain the bedrock of modern families. Eighty-one percent of grandparents say they play an important role in their grandchildren’s lives. Although the fundamentals of the grandparenting role remain the same, changes in attitudes, technology, and our world have impacted how grandparents relate to and engage with their grandchildren. Grandparents hold increasingly progressive views about their grandchildren and society, but many are still holding on to traditional values and views on parenting. Grandparents retain the title of respected elder. While the mosaic of grandparent life today is changing, what hasn’t changed is the grandparent’s respected role in the family. Grandparents today largely view their role as imparting wisdom and knowledge to their grandchildren. When asked to define themselves across a variety of roles, the top roles they chose for themselves were as a source of wisdom (52%), the purveyor of family roots, heritage, and culture (49%), a valued elder (49%), and a friend (44%).

 

Grandparents are actively seeking information about the latest issues their grandchildren may be facing, how to speak to their grandchildren about issues in their lives, and how to connect with their grandchildren. They also seek information on how to speak to their grandchild’s parents about issues concerning their grandchild.

Join the PSRC Grandparenting group on January 17 at 11:00 a.m. (new time) at The Nancy S. Klath Center for Lifelong Learning for a hybrid meeting (in-person and on Zoom). The group will now be meeting usually the third Tuesday of the month. For questions, please email Sharon Hurley, PSRC facilitator, at shurley@princetonsenior.org, or call 609.751.9699.
