Family Stories and Grandchildren’s Emotional Wellbeing
How can grandparents and parents help our children weather life’s inevitable setbacks? It turns out that among the most important thing you can do may be the simplest of all: share your family stories. Marshall will share the findings of his and Robyn Fivush’s groundbreaking study on the role of family stories in promoting emotional resilience in children with a focus on grandparents’ roles in sharing these stories.
