The Joys and Challenges of Grandparenting
Grandchildren are a blessing! We find it easy to love them wholeheartedly, and they return that love to us manifold.
It can be challenging to know how to help them when they have big feelings, especially when our ideas of what to do does not match their parents’ ideas. We want to be supportive of our children in their roles as parents and find that our input is not always appreciated. We come into the role of grandparents with unresolved stress and tensions from when we were parents years ago. These lingering tensions can make communicating with our families seem baffling.
Join Certified Instructor Emmy Rainwalker and Certified Trainer Ann Hefferan as they talk about the joys and challenges of grandparenting and how Parenting by Connection tools have helped bring more support, cooperation, and closeness to their growing families.

What Difference Does a Parent Support Network Really Make?
Parenting can be the most challenging work you’ll ever do. And parents are provided almost no training and often very little support for this tough, and wonderful, work. Join Hand in Hand Founder, Patty Wipfler, as she discusses the advantages and challenges of parent support networks and shares insight that can help you find the right kind of support for your family.
Patty will interview several Parenting by Connection parents in challenging situations. They’ll talk about about how they built their support networks, what difficulties they faced, and what kind of difference they’ve noticed.
- Niels, a new stepdad (and frequent target of upset)
- Kathy, mother of an adopted, special needs child
- Tara, mother of twins
- Zelon, mother of eight children and eight grandchildren
They look forward to sharing their stories, and their support ideas, with you.
