The Changing Role Of The Grandparent
When I was a child, oh so many years ago, the role of a grandparent was to spoil, guide, and love you. Oh yes, they were also there to listen, give you hugs, and to listen.
The role of a grandparent is still all those things but has expanded to include raising their grandchild in many cases. I was amazed to find out that there are over 13 million children in the United States alone that are being raising by a grandparent.
Many of these grandparents are living either in the poverty level or below. The grandchildren are lucky to have them. They are there to offer love and support.
We now find grandparents becoming parents again. We are seeing more grandparents back in the work force instead of enjoying their golden years.
That being said, the love they get back in exchange more than compensates them for the big change in their life.
