We'll talk about the difficult conversations that are essential to have between Boomers and their aging parents on this edition of Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins. A panel of experts will talk about ways to make the conversations easier to start and easier to have and about what sorts of things should be discussed. We'll also talk about a study that resulted in "The 40/70 Rule," which refers to conversations 40 year olds should have with their parents when the parents are 70. Joins us to hear some conversation tips and to ask your own questions on the next Charlotte Talks.
