The 2005 Census indicated that 5.5 million grandchildren are living with a grandparent. Nearly half of all grandparents are responsible for most of the needs (i.e., food, shelter, clothing) for one or more of their grandchildren. Raising children in the 21st Century is different than it was even twenty years ago. More importantly, parenting again as a grandparent is not "normal" and certainly not what you had planned. Beyond parenting there has to be perspective and self care. This talk is about making sure caregivers and children all get what they need.
