Grandparents Support Group
Change What You Can and Let the Rest Go
Thursday, Mar 30 • 7:00 - 8:00 PM • Zoom Webinar
Is your grandchild exhibiting worrisome signs of a developmental disability that are being ignored by his/her parents? Would you like to suggest a therapy or a social outlet for your grandchild that would benefit his/her quality of life but not sure how to approach the parents? Walking the narrow line between wanting to share in treatment and parenting decisions for your grandchild with a disability and trusting your adult children to know what is best can feel like a harrowing, tight-rope act. How much involvement is appropriate? How can grandparents be a valuable resource to their grandchild with a disability while supporting their adult children in their parenting decisions?
The Grandparent Support Group:
The Grandparent Support Group will meet virtually via Zoom. An electronic device equipped with a microphone and camera are required to participate using the Zoom platform.
