OSHR 3010 - Parenting for Seniors: Wisdom & Practicality - PERK SERIES

  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

As a first-time parent or a grandparent, seniors entering or reentering the parenting role bring an entirely different set of knowledge, skills, and life experiences compared to those who begin parenting at an earlier age.

This talk will review pediatric growth (cognitive and physical) and behavioral
development, and explore strategies for using the senior skill set as a foundation for successful parenting and grand-parenting.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
