The role of grandparents today has changed greatly and, through financial necessity or personal choice, now provides greater financial, emotional and practical support for many families, with childcare or household chores. So, in keeping with our focus on family ministry, we believe we should present and support a stronger intergenerational mix.
Today's grandparents, the baby boomers, are now fitter and more active than ever before and often have the time, energy and means to step in and assist families. They also provide a valuable link with the past and enable children to appreciate and understand their own history and traditions. But they also need encouragement and support as they take on these additional responsibilities. They need to feel connected.
Our articles and blogs will now present information for families and ministry covering such areas as reviews of media, books and apps, craft projects, recipes, curricula, resources, research and trends, leadership materials and also, educational resources for home-schoolers. Take a few moments to explore our new, enlarged site and check back regularly as more content is added.
