  • Could you do with some guidance on grandparenting in general?
  • Do you want to give your grownup children the best possible support?
  • Would you like to feel more relaxed and less stressed?
  • Do you sometimes feel lonely or under pressure?

Being a grandparent isn’t what it used to be: today’s adult children and grandchildren are living more rushed, full-to-the-brim lives, and it’s often difficult for grandparents to figure out how to fit into such hectic schedules. In addition, many grandparents help out with child care, and may have mixed feelings about it, or simply need some advice on today’s children.

If you would like to make the most of your time with your grandchildren, come and join a small and Gentle Group for Grannies which starts soon (for women only at this stage) on the Worcestershire/Herefordshire/Gloucestershire borders and will include such topics as:

  • Develop the Family Team
  • Start (and End) with a Clean Slate
  • Remember the Things You Weren’t Allowed to Do
  • Refine the Art of saying “Yes”
  • Introduce Them to Gratitude
  • Believe (and Make Believe) Again

Starting – Wednesday 1st March and each Wednesday lunchtime to 29th March 2017

The venue – near Upton upon Severn, details with your booking confirmation

Arrival time – 12.15 for warming homemade soup and tasty bread and cheese. Ends around 2pm

After which will follow easy-to implement, yet deeply impactful suggestions, in five short sessions which will enable you to have a closer and more joyful relationship with that special grandchild.

Price for the five sessions £25 (payment confirms your place) to include soup & cheese lunch

PLUS for the first six grannies to sign up, a copy of The Don’t Sweat Guide for Grandparents

“Grandparents are a gift to the world! It is from their love that we are here to begin with. I think of my own grandparents with great fondness, as my children do theirs. In fact, a huge number of people I’ve met and known over the years love, admire and respect their grandparents as much as anyone else in this world. I only hope my grandchildren (if I’m lucky enough to have them someday) will feel that way about me!”
