The Role.

Often described as a mentor, historian, childcare provider, confidant/advisor, and role model everyone seems to agree that the grandparents exemplify qualities of patience, wisdom, stability, support, nurturing, accompanied by unconditional love. With such great wisdom comes the vision to see how the role of grandparents is quickly changing.

Childhood is not
what it used to be.

Baby boomers are eager to care for their grandchildren, but may face challenges as their grandchildren grow up in an 

ever-changing modern world.

Many aspects of childhood are new to this century. Using tools like cellphones and social media can enhance your relationship with your grandchildren.

Father and Son

This time the child is theirs.

The truth is as much as grandparents are thrilled to care for children again, parents are intent on adhering the latest child care recommendations regardless of who is watching their children.

Effective communication and mutual respect between grandparents and new parents are essential to maintain a harmonious relationship while ensuring the safety and well-being of children.

The Journey.
