In this episode, Learning Specialist and Behaviour Consultant Cori Stern discusses the difficulties many parents in the sandwich generation face when balancing their children and their parents. Some topics discussed include: navigating one’s own emotions and anxiety when uncertain how to expose their children to a declining family member or a family member who has changed from the person they once knew; managing a child’s emotions when visiting a behavioural (physically or verbally) family member; how to speak to a child about sudden changes in a family member and the potential decline of a family member.
