Publisher's Description

Ready or not, you’re a parent again. And if you’re wondering how exactly you’re going to raise your children’s children, you’re not alone. 

More than 3 million people across North America are raising their grandchildren, and like you, they have done all this parenting before. But times have changed since you raised your own children.

Now more than ever, substance use—whether opioids, alcohol, or other forms of drug addiction—has made many birth parents simply unfit for the job. Otherwise, the trouble might be mental health problems, incarceration, or immaturity. Whatever the reason for your new role, you now must help your grandchildren adjust to a shifting family dynamic, perhaps also addressing problem behaviors that stem from their difficult past.

In The Grandfamily Guidebook, authors Andrew Adesman, MD, and Christine Adamec offer expert advice together with insights from other grandparents. You’ll also find practical tips, including how to cope with difficult birth parents; legal, financial, and medical issues; challenges with school and social life; and your own self-care.

With this book, you’ll have a practical, inspiring guide to raising a family—your grandfamily.
