IF YOU’RE WATCHING YOUR PARENTS POParenting YOUR GRANDPARENTS (OR YOUR GREAT GRANDPARENTS) WHILE YOU’RE RAISING YOUR OWN YOUNGSTERS, HERE’S WHAT JOINING THE POP COMMUNITY WILL DO FOR YOU:
The Circle of Life is never ending. The influence that watching POParenting will have on you, your generation and, in turn, on your young children’s hearts and minds, is far more profound than you might imagine. Many years from now, you may find yourself more dependent on those youngsters than you’d ever thought or wished. Nonetheless your children will still remember the loving attention shown their older relatives by those of the POP generation.
Our families are training grounds for how to live and it is there that we share the values we wish to leave to the generations that follow. The “take-home” messages from POP and the POP community website are numerous. They include the notions that:
- Ultimately we all are connected to and need each other to thrive
- Each of us has important experiences to learn and teach each other about caring for our aging loved ones
- By connecting with others, we can avoid much of the exhaustion and isolation that’s made POP seem like the “loneliest job in the world”
- Working together we can fulfill our mutual POP goals and desires
By joining, you’ll also get exclusive access to our newly expanded offerings, including the resources page, full access to the POP Blog, and the POP Community Forums.
