Older adults who serve as the primary caretakers for their grandchildren make up a rapidly growing segment of the U.S. population. The situation is becoming so common that questions concerning grandparents raising a grandchild appeared for the first time on the 2000 census. Many adults who suddenly find themselves the guardian of a small child or teenager feel overwhelmed, but often the information available to help them isn’t readily accessible.

That’s why we created the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Information Series. There are are 10 pamphlets in all, with a variety of ordering options available to meet local agency, workshop and health department needs. Each pamphlet contains brief, to-the-point information and emotional support in an easy-to-read format. The series is meant to answer the needs of an extremely diverse audience, which spans every socioeconomic group, race and educational level.

If you are planning to use these pamphlets as part of a workshop or other group meeting, consider buying individual titles in packets of 25 to save money. Just click on the item number before each pamphlet title.

Set 2 contains one copy of each of the following titles:

C1365G Teaching Money Skills: This pamphlet tackles the subject of teaching children about the value of money, saving for the future, and setting and earning allowances.

C1365H No More Fights About Food!: The definition of good nutrition has changed significantly in the past 10 years. This pamphlet explains the Food Guide Pyramid and gives suggestions on foods, serving sizes and ways to encourage healthy eating habits for young children.

C1365I Setting Limits: Helps grandparents decide on limitations appropriate to a child’s age and follow through to enforce those limits.

C1365J Choosing a Parenting Style: Grandparents may feel initially uncomfortable in the parent role. This pamphlet helps grandparents examine the strengths they bring to the new relationship with their grandchildren and also helps them identify effective ways to communicate authority, love and consistency.

C1365K The Teenage Years!: Discusses the typical challenges faced by any parent or caregiver when dealing with teenagers, but focuses on how these issues may be particularly demanding for grandparents. Offers helpful suggestions for keeping the relationship between grandparent and teenager strong and healthy.
