The authors of this article discuss how for many grandparents raising their grandchildren, they can feel underprepared in being second-time parents, as previous experience raising their own children often differs considerably from the present challenges of caring for grandchildren. The authors recommend a specific type of educational support group to help grandparents in managing their roles as parents-again. They discuss how a kind of peer-led support group, in which successful grandparent-caregivers provide a constructive paradigm in parental matters for other grandparents, can be beneficial.
