Lecture: Grandparents - expectations & opportunities in everyday family life

Grandparents are needed and loved, they are often more relaxed and have more time and patience. In contact with their grandparents, grandchildren can also
develop a deeper understanding of their own family history. Sometimes there are also expectations that are difficult to fulfill or concerns about differing views on parenting. Most of the time, however, it enriches the whole family. And our own experiences? Impulses for parents, grandparents and all interested parties with Birgit Streiter, long-time head of the mother-parent counseling service, and the psychoanalyst and pedagogue Josef Christian Aigner. In cooperation with Elternbildung Tirol.
