Help for Baby Boomers Raising Grandchildren

More grandparents are raising grandchildren and many find themselves financially strained and socially isolated. However, there is assistance available, National Association of Social Workers member Janis Marler said.

“Raising a child at any age can be stressful at times and parenting at an older age bring more challenges,” she said.

Marler offered some great advice to these grandparents in this FoxBusiness article.

Social workers often help families overcome life’s hurdles. To learn more visit the National Association of Social Workers’ “Help Starts Here” Kids & Familes Website by clicking here.

  1. Hello: you mention Baby Boomers raising grandchildren and the stress involved in that. However I would like to hear from anyone who is doing double duty like myself. I am raising 2 Grandchildren and looking after my Mother requires alot attention. I It would help to hear from others in the same situation. Also it is a major financial strain.
    Thanks for listening
