Show Notes

Grandparenting.  This episode is for anyone who is a grandparent, has a grandparent in their life - or might soon become a grandparent. Or you just love an exceptional interview with a fabulous guest!

We welcome Julie Dolan Smith, one of the legendary Satellite Sisters.  With over 20-years in the radio/podcast industry, Julie has now taken on the alter ego of “Urban Nana.”  With 10 grandchildren and  years of experience, her wit and wisdom will make you laugh. and think.

We explore with Julie many questions submitted by listeners:

  • When should grandparents get involved in disciplining, or even just talking to their grandchildren about their bad or impolite behavior, if ever?  
  • When does it become necessary to tell the parents about bad or unkind behavior from the grandchildren?
  • When grandchildren are at their grandparents’ home,  being taken care of by the grandparents, whose rules have to be followed? 
  • What is your advice for the grandparent who lives far away from the grandchildren? How can they keep the connection alive?

She sums things up very quickly with ONE piece of advice we all will want to tape to our foreheads.

We hope you enjoy the episode.  To learn more about Julie and the Satellite Sisters, visit their website.  You can link to all of their podcast episodes, read the bios and learn why this podcast is really like “having coffee with a friend.”  Here is a quick link to their 20-year-history video.
