Ted Page was tired of the negative messaging about grandpas in popular media when he learned that he would become a grandpa. Instead of just complaining about that negative messaging, Ted decides to launch a blog about the positive aspects of being a grandpa, and so, Good Grandpa was born.
We sit down for a unique show where Ted and I interview each other about how our lives changed when we found out we were going to become grandfathers. We both have similar journeys with different methods of delivering our messages of the positive impact that grandfathers have in the lives of grandchildren and their families. Ted writes about his experiences and his views about being a grandfather, and I use a podcast platform to create audio content about the value of grandfathers.
During our discussion, Ted shares many impactful and entertaining insights into his role and experience with being a grandfather. One of the biggest takeaways for me was the conversation we had about raising grandchildren to have the courage and strength to express that they respectfully disagree with someone else's position or opinion. We use the fun example of how great it is when Red Sox and Yankee fans can sit down and have a respectful conversation about baseball and their teams, even though you would be hard-pressed to find two groups that "hate" each other. (Although the Dodgers are really the best team) While we use sports as our example, it is important to teach our grandchildren and our families how to get along even when we disagree with one another.
Once you listen to this conversation, come back and leave me a comment or shoot me an email at email@example.com and let me know what your big takeaway was from this episode.
