FC 005: When Parents Need Parenting - Guest: B. Lynn Goodwin (June 14, 2009)

Family Confidential: Secrets of Successful Parenting with Annie Fox, M.Ed. show

Summary: Parents give and children take. That's the natural order of things. But sometimes it all gets flipped on its head when aging parents become unable to care for themselves and adult children become caregivers. In this podcast I talk with B. Lynn Goodwin, author of "You Want Me To Do What? – Journaling for Caregivers" (Tate Publishing 2008). Lynn takes her experience as an English teacher, writer and former caregiver and provides the safe space, the compassion, and the inspiration for caregivers to process their stress and celebrate what is right.
