Grandparents and grandchildren have something in common. They are inventing and reinventing themselves in ways that the generation in the middle cannot.
Lakewood Ranch, FL (PRWEB) April 26, 2012
According to George H. Schofield, PhD, founder of New Bright Life, LLC, grandparenting for people over 50 needs to change. This is due to a combination of factors: a dramatically changing world, a longer lifespan and greater health for grandparents, and the demands and opportunities facing today’s grandchildren.
Dr. Schofield offers the opportunity for aware and engaged people over 50 to move from being average grandparents to being Gold Medal Grandparents.
According to Dr. Schofield, grandparents can dramatically affect their grandchildren’s futures, including their ability to learn, their educational success, employment, personal relationships, social status, life satisfaction and financial security. Schofield’s research reveals that children who miss out on developmental essentials will spend the rest of their lives trying to catch up.
In an upcoming live web event, Schofield will be teaching grandparents over 50 three things. First, how to have the maximum impact on the success of their grandchildren’s lives, both today and in the future. Second, ways to have the most enjoyable and beneficial grandparenting experience possible. Third, how being a Gold Medal Grandparent is critical for the grandparent’s successful aging and contributes to a high quality of life for the grandparent and grandchild, for years to come.
Schofield’s teaching is based on his firsthand experience of grandparenting as well his expertise in psychology, lifelong development, adult learning, counseling, and being a life coach for over 50.
Participants have the option to access the seminar online or via teleconference, and a transcript of the event is available upon request.
