Family Matters More multi-generational families than ever before are living under the same roof. Grandparents, adult children and the generation sandwiched in between, worrying about the needs of both. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll use the NPR special series "Family Matters" to guide our discussion about aging parents, boomerang kids and issues of money, duty and love. NPR's Marilyn Geewax joins us. Join host Mike McIntyre Tuesday at 9 on 90.3.
