A Grandfather’s Legacy

Grandfather and son 220 x 270

The extended family is vital to the health and wholeness of it’s members. It provides a wealth of assistance to parents, and an attentiveness to the needs of children during their growth and maturation.

Unfortunately, in a contemporary Western society (which is largely mobile, and economically driven)… tremendous challenges erode the fabric of family life, which significantly affects the well-being of parents and children alike.

At the turn of the twentieth century, one would be hard-pressed to find a family in which grandparents and other relatives “did not” play a significant role in child rearing, and general mutual support. Today, it is more common to find families without this special assistance.

This month, as Tonya K. Freeman continues to share her conversations with, and about fathers – on her podcast Tonya and Friends – she explores the importance of the Grandfather. Her interview is with Steve Berlack, President and Founder of The Berlack Method, LLC; Public Speaker and Workshop Leader – on the influence and legacy of his grandfather in his life’s work.
