Grandparents4Kids Unites with Parents to Advocate for Quality Education in Schools

Have you ever pondered the profound impact grandparents have on shaping the future? Linda, the wise and warm-hearted founder of Grandparents for Kids, joins us to illuminate the influential role these cherished family members play in the tapestry of education and moral guidance. Through her own experiences as a seasoned medical professional and her passionate involvement in medical missions, Linda brings to life the concept of grandparents as "bonus parents"—integral to nurturing and supporting the growth of our children. Our enlightening conversation with her will leave you inspired and appreciative of the multigenerational bonds that fortify family values and community strength.
