More than 40% of people in their 40’s and 50’s have at least one living parent – and a child under the age of 21. Most likely there is a job, a house to run, groceries to buy and meals to get on the table. How can you cope with the massive demand on your time for love, affection and decision-making skills? It’s not easy, but we can help on Caught Between Generations – we’ll be talking all things multi-generational with practical tips you can use right now and in the long term to make your life better. More peaceful, more organized and more informed with expert interviews with those in the know.
Are you a “drone parent”? Do you use technology to monitor your kids on their computer, phone, or car? Listen to Robin Raskin, founder of Living in Digital Times, discuss “to track or not to track”.
