Grandparents Raising Grandkids
All parents face stress in raising children on a routine basis.
However, grandparents face the additional stress of being “repeat parents” which is quite unique. Research shows that networks of support are crucial for grandparents raising grandchildren.  It can often seem to grandparent caregivers that they are alone in a huge endeavor. 

CSU Extension has established a website designed especially for grandparents and kinship caregivers at http://www.ext.colostate.edu/grg.

This Online Support website includes a blog, a listing of support groups in Colorado, frequently asked questions, publications, and links to other resource guides.  The purpose of this resource is to increase grandparents’ knowledge about the issues affecting them, while empowering and uniting grandparents who may feel isolated, invisible, or overwhelmed. Please visit this site and feel free to share this resource with others.
