You hope to be grandparenting teens for an impact that lasts. But does it look like what you'd think? Authors Mark Gregston and Larry Fowler weigh in on pursuing your grandkids in tough years—in ways that work.
I don't share my opinion unless I'm asked. I think that's the role that, as Larry said, a lot of grandparents get in. It's like, “I've just got to share my opinion.” They don't want your opinion. What they want is perspective. They want to know, “How do you see this and see it differently in light of what they've been taught, applying it to a world that is out of control in one sense?”-- Mark Gregston
