Grandchildren come with all the joy and less responsibility - or do they? With sky high childcare fees, an increasing number of single parents needing support and a history that tells us it’s often grandmothers - and not grandfathers - who will look after the grandkids, how do older women prevent themselves becoming trapped as unpaid childminders, and losing the chance to finally put themselves first?
What expectations does society and our own children set for the grandmother role and how difficult do we find it to set boundaries without feeling guilty ?
Join this discussion led by WOW Founder and new-ish grandmother of two Jude Kelly, to hear from the frontline of grandmotherhood, the joys and challenges of grandparenting, and what we can learn from each other.
This session is primarily for grandmothers, but we welcome others to come and hear the discussion, in preparation for grandmotherdom - or to rethink their own attitudes.
Whether you’re having this conversation for the first time, or you came to the brilliant Grandmothers session in March 2021 and want to continue the discussion - join us!
This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext, delivered by MyClearText.
