Welcome to Raising Parents, a category of articles and related resources developed to support parents, and sometimes grandparentstoo who are raising their grandkids. Raising Parents, as a topic area, explores the challenges, joys, and occasionally the ridiculous situations that parents sometimes find themselves in while parenting and raising their children.
I also draw upon my own experience as a father of three grown daughters, as a “Grampa” to six grandkids, as a Friend involved in pastoral care to children and families and from my work professionally as a youth counselor for 31 years in my community. Hopefully, we can share some honest truth, float some ideas and have a little fun along the way.
Also, please check out my Everything Family, a section at Rise This Day that offers supportive resources for dealing with…well, everything family!
