Grandparenting in a Pandemic: A Conversation for Grandparents in Interfaith Families – Online

April 17, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on April 23, 2020 at 7:00 pm


Long-distance grandparenting has always been a challenge. Coronavirus has made it a whole lot harder – even for grandparents who live down the block. Add to this the complexity of being a grandparent in an intra- or interfaith family. But there are also some new opportunities to connect even more deeply – if we take advantage of them. For some of us, this might be a great opportunity to tell holiday stories to our entertainment-starved grandkids. For others, this is a time to really set aside differences and build trust with our family and in-laws.

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Ruth Nemzoff to swap ideas of how, as she says, “to be a creative grandparent/grand-friend using old and new technologies and all the skills you’ve ever learned in life.”

We will be holding two sessions (same discussion occurring twice – one on April 17 and one on April 23).

Register here for April 17 at 1:00 pm EST

Dr. Ruth Nemzoff is an 18Doors Board member and the author of Don’t Bite Your Tongue: How to Foster Rewarding Relationships with Your Adult Children and of Don’t Roll Your Eyes: Making In-Laws Into Family. She is a resident scholar at Brandeis Women’s Studies Research Center and former Assistant Minority Leader, New Hampshire House of Representatives
