THIS EPISODE OF GROWING OLDER LIVING YOUNGER reflects on the unique perspective of grandparents, having the freedom to love their grandchildren without the responsibility of shaping them and highlights the value of empowering ourselves to value and share the wisdom we have accumulated through life with the young ones around us.
Today’s Featured Guest is Judith Frizlen, writer, teacher, mother, grandmother, founder of the Rose Garden Early Childhood Center and author of Where Wisdom Meets Wonder: 40 Stories of Grandma Love. An advocate for young children and everyone who cares for them – she is a champion of play and loves to go on adventures with her husband – whether traveling, kayaking, hiking, bicycling, or just strolling through the local park. Her other books include: “Unpacking Guilt, a Mother’s Journey to Freedom”, “Words for Parents in Small Doses”, and “Words for Teachers and Caregivers in Small Doses”.
