#8 Community and Sandwich Generation Homes Part 1
The family community comes with inter-generational dependencies that shift over time. Babies and toddlers depend completely on their parents. Teens depend less on their parents, then adult children become independent. On the other end, you have elderly parents that begin to slow down and they depend on their children.
In this episode, Jorge and his good friend, Raul, talk about the family community and how the dependencies and needs shift as everyone ages, grows up and then winds down. They reflect on their role as the sandwich generation with their shift from raising kids to mentoring them to eventually depending on them. They discuss what needs to happen in the early years so the relationships stay positive and the implications on their legacy.
