The role of grandparents in today’s society is much greater than you might know.
Nearly three million kids are being raised by grandparents and nearly five million are living with them.
A whopping fifty-two billion dollars a year are spent on grandchildren. Educational support alone is costing grandparents thirty-two billion dollars.
The grands are invaluable because they provide consistency, stability, tradition and wisdom.
More than anything else, grandparents provide time and attention. As a result, they may observe problems with kids that parents might not have noticed. They’re in a difficult position.
If this is you and you want to communicate your concerns without tension, go to DrClaudia.net and read the article, “Parenting, it’s not just for moms and dads anymore”.
Grandparenting these days isn’t a piece of cake. No wonder they call you “grand”!
