Grandparents Raising Grandchildren - Facts for Families

Grandparents are an important resource for both parents and children. They routinely provide child care, financial assistance and emotional support. Occasionally, they are called upon to provide much more, including temporary or full time care and responsibility for their grandchildren. An increasing number of children in the United States live in households headed by a grandparent. The American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's Facts for Families provides concise and up-to-date information on grandparents raising grandchildren.
