The Cool Grandpa Podcast


Apr 12, 2024

Lee Ostler joins the conversation this week to talk about his relationship with his grandchildren. We are fortunate to hear Lee talk about building and nurturing relationships with both grandchildren and now great-grandchildren.

We discuss how our identities change from being known as 'Dad' to becoming 'Grandpa.' While we enjoy the change that comes from having grandchildren, it is a bit of a mixed bag of emotions and our place within the family. Many men, when envisioning themselves as suddenly older, wonder about the value they have with their friends, family, and even professionally.

Lee talks to us about the importance of building bonds and relationships with our grandchildren, starting when they are young. We also talk about the importance of having different kinds of activities with the grandchildren because we don't know what moment will be a quality moment for them. The grandchildren pick and choose which event or which time with grandpa will be impactful for them.

You will enjoy hearing Lee's insights and stories about his experience as a grandfather. After you have listened to this episode, please be sure to subscribe to the podcast on your favorite podcast app. It would be great if you could share this conversation with three friends and family members.
