The best news for Baby Boomers: babyboomers.com
Baby Boomers roared through their teens and 20s -- taking much of American culture along for the ride. By sheer numbers, Baby Boomers influenced everything from music to merchandise. Then they settled down to be scientists and business leaders, lawyers and legislators, journalists and artists. Born between the years of 1946 and 1964, Baby Boomers are in the prime of life -- influential and impactful. The website babyboomers.com addresses topics and issues that concern all of us, including and especially Baby Boomers -- lifestyle, relationships, money, healthy living, travel and more. It's an exciting site -- and I'm enjoying working with a terrific staff as the new editor. www.babyboomers.com
Writing for GRAND Magazine
Shortly after GRAND Magazine listed Good to be Grand as #1 on its "Best Books for Grandparents," I became acquainted with the editor of GRAND, Christine Crosby. GRAND became all digital on 2014 and that has opened up an opportunity for linking grandparents and prospective grandparents to interesting content, both in print and digital -- not just about grandparenting but about this grand time of life.
The latest issue of GRAND includes an article I wrote on 21st Century Grandparenting http://www.grandmagazine.com/2017/10/grandparenting-21st-century-style/
And grandmagazine.com just published my mini-essay "The perfection of our imperfect grandshildren" http://www.grandmagazine.com/2017/11/perfection-imperfect-grandchildren/
Media as Watchdog: Without journalists we can trust, how will we know the truth?
Back before social media, the press played an important role in our democracy. And that was the role of watchdog: Exposing people (including our leaders) who were doing things they weren’t supposed to do, examining their statements and giving them the litmus test of accuracy. If we lose that, we lose an important check and balance that protects our power as “we the people.”
Good to Be Grand -- How it all started
When I was about to become a grandmother, I was looking for information and inspiration! I searched for a book that would tell me what’s still true about childcare and child development. A book that would teach me about new techniques, new equipment, and new parenting philosophies. A book that would help navigate changing family dynamics and prepare me for this important new phase.
I couldn’t find that book anywhere. So I wrote Good to Be Grand.
Prepare for this transformative stage of life—and make the baby’s first year one of the most meaningful experiences for both of you.
