The Chesterfield County Senior Advocate invites those who are raising grandchildren or relatives’ children to attend Grandparent Connection. This monthly support group meets the first Thursday of each month, 4:15 p.m. - 6 p.m., at the Chesterfield County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court building, 7000 Lucy Corr Blvd.
During the meeting on July 11, David Stitt, a licensed, certified professional counselor, and marriage and family therapist with Ironbridge Counseling, will discuss parentification, or the process of role reversal whereby children assume more of a caregiver role or fill an emotional void for a parent. Positive discipline also will be discussed.
This is a confidential, nonthreatening, nonjudgmental group. It is a safe place to share your experience and concerns or listen to others.
Free child care is available, and light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 768-7878 or email Leidheiserd@chesterfield.gov.
