Due to the rising maternal mortality rate in the United States, more and more grandparents are finding themselves once again “parenting”. In the 20+ years since many of these grandparents parented, not only has parenting changed, but this time around it is complicated by issues of legal guardianship, accessing insurance for their grandchildren and other issues they never faced as first time parents, and for which there are often few answers.
The GrandParents Parenting support group is a place where grandparents who are parenting can come to get support, information, find out about resources and to share stories and glean wisdom from others who may be further along this parenting road than they are.
GrandParents Parenting support group will begin in 2018. Please check back to see when the group will meet, where and at what times.
