1. Framework for the Sandwich Generation Kim Hegwood 18:58

I also saw this in schools where parents would be concerned about their kids or teachers were concerned about kids with behavior issues or falling behind academically. And one of my first questions to a parent would be, has anything changed in the home? And I can’t tell you how many times I wish I’d taken data on this. But I can’t tell you how many times the response was. Well, you know, my dad has stage four colon cancer and just moved in with us, or I’m taking care of my grandmother who has Alzheimer’s, or my mother just died. And she was the primary Caregiver while I was working with my kids. So, there are all these factors impacting children too.
