Grandparents, we have something specifically for you today!  (If you’re a parent, listen and then consider sharing this episode with a grandparent in your life.) You long to build more connection into your relationships with your grandchildren or to be more supportive of your adult children as they learn to parent.  The Connected Families Framework can help you build connection and be the supportive grandparent you long to be.   

In today’s episode, two Connected Families Certified Parent Coaches, Cindy Stonestreet (Grandmother and CRNA) and Dijea Young (Grandmother and homeschool mentor), join Stacy Bellward (podcast host) for an encouraging conversation. Cindy and Dijea share their hearts about the powerful impact the Connected Families Framework has had in their daily interactions with their grandchildren.  

In this podcast, you’ll discover:

  • it’s never too late to change your approach to discipline
  • practical ways to infuse the interactions with both your adult children and grandchildren with safety, connection, and unconditional love  
  • how you can respond to your grandchild’s meltdown or defiance with a fresh approach
  • examples of how you can support and respect your adult children in their parenting 

We hope that you have been encouraged by today’s podcast, and we look forward to getting to know you. Please check out our website, and don’t forget to reach out if you need help. It is a joy to be able to walk with you as you parent your kids in God’s grace and truth!
