The Afterword: A Conversation About the Future of Words

Feb 26, 2021

Parenting is challenging. It grows more complicated when it crosses a generational gap. New technology , societal bias, and legal systems often compound the difficulties these families experience.

Michelle Anderson of the Appalachian Council of Governments and Pam Meeker-Stolz from Alliance of Relative Caregivers join the podcast to talk about tools that help a growing number of grandparents and caregivers raising children.

What we talked about:

  • How communities can support grandparent-parents and kinship carers as they navigate expectations
  • Ways we can listen to families experiencing multi-tiered traumas
  • How to help alleviate the isolation, stigmas, and negative stereotypes that many experience doing second-round parenting experience 
  • Why connecting to others with similar stories is key to bridging the social divide and finding sustaining support.
