Millions of Grandparents Raising Grandkids

Fifty-nine percent of the 3.1 million American kids who don’t share a house with a parent live with their grandparents, USA Today reported [1]. Citing U.S. Census data, the paper said 67 percent of the grandparents are under the age of 60 and 13 percent are under 45. Even though raising a grandchild can add a great deal of stress to their lives, a University of Toronto researcher told USA Today that, “It seems that grandparents will step forward no matter what their personal sacrifices to take care of these children.” (July 2011)
