Topic: Good practices in cross generational child care
Speaker: Dr. Sandra Tsang Kit Man, JP
Good practices in cross generational child care
Many grandparents welcome grand children and are happy to help with child care, but cases of help turning into hate are also common. Should grandparents help with child care? Are there Dos and Don’ts to prevent sweet intentions turning sour? Do young fathers have a specific position to harmonize in-law and cross-generation dynamics? This talk will provide answers, local case studies and service resources.
