Abook that provides practical help, encouragement and a wealth of knowledge and understanding to grandparents who are raising their grandchild is in the book titled Grandchildren, Our Hopes and Dreams written by Sally Kabak.
Today’s grandparents have many roles with their grandchildren. Some grandparents provide care on a regular basis when the child’s parents aren’t available; others are great playmates with their grandchildren or what many may think of as traditional grandparents. An emerging role that some grandparents find themselves in is raising their grandchildren.
Nowadays, grandparents raising children face an overwhelming array of emotional and social concerns. Some may feel angry and resentful, since they were looking forward to leisure time in retirement and must put those plans on hold. Others may feel guilty and feel responsible because their child cannot care for his or her own children. Aside from these, grandparents will have to deal with the internet, teen texting, drugs, and underage drinking of their grandchildren to name just a few.
This book was written to provide readers particularly the grandparents with a sense of knowledge and deeper understanding that they are not alone with this task. There are people from every walk of life that suddenly finds them in the same situation.
It is the intention of this book to give grandparents the much needed encouragement, support and practical help in being a grandparent raising a grandchild. The need to raise grandchildren often comes as a surprise, but, when the challenge arises, it is important to develop a plan to tackle one’s immediate needs.
