Sandwich Parents are ‘sandwiched’ between two generations, the one that raised us and the one we are raising. In order to be the parents we want to be, we have to work on the 'me' in parenting. We speak with many people who have chosen to raise their children very differently from the way they were raised. They share their stories and their journeys.
