Since my daughter is starting to think about getting her little ones into sports, I'm going to see if she'd like to read this article. I think it could be a very valuable guide. I'm sure a lot of GPs (grandparents) will show/ask to show it to their adult sons and daughters who have kids.

It's probably even more significant for those GPs who are raising their GC (grandchildren). And I know, as the moderator of Grandparents Caring for Grandkids that there are, for better or worse, a growing number of those. A support group for frequent and fulltime GP (and other relative) caregivers, we have over 1800 members and many of those have custody of or have had to adopt their GC.

In fact, if you're reading this and you're raising your GC (or other relative children), helping to raise them or, like me, watching them several days a week and/or for long hours, I'd love to have you come over and talk to us. You can find us by clicking on Community at the very top of the page (above the line with the site title) and then clicking on Grandparenting. Or by just keying in this link:
