Guest: Dr. Ken Canfield
Dr. Ken Canfield believes we are on the brink of a grandparenting revolution. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Tim Clinton and Dr. Canfield unpack lessons from Dr. Ken’s book, The Heart of Grandparenting, and the opportunity that grandparents have to leave a lasting and impactful legacy. He advises grandparents to communicate their own heritage to their grandchildren, which helps in the formation of their developing identities, and building resiliency. Dr. Canfield also emphasizes the importance of being a godly example, because the best lessons are caught, rather than taught.
According to Dr. James Dobson, “An inheritance is something you leave to someone, while a legacy is something you instill in someone.” On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Tim Clinton and Dr. Ken Canfield continue discussing Dr. Ken’s book, The Heart of Grandparenting. He shares how grandparents can have an “angelic influence” on their grandchildren, pointing them to the Lord and acting as safeguards. In addition, Dr. Canfield explains how grandparents are called to be reconcilers and teachers to help bridge the gap in family dynamics.
