The State of Grandparenting

a special feature from Kay Ziplow & Leslie Zinberg, founders

Let’s face it, family dynamics are ever changing, and grandparenting is changing with it…so painting a picture of grandparenting today is a complicated task. For example, on one hand, greater mobility has meant that families are spread across the country and many children aren’t able to see their grandparents as frequently. Life is hectic for all generations and even families who live near each other may not spend much time together. Look at what occurred when we all were in quarantine! Covid has forever impacted every facet of our lives. On the other hand, people are having fewer children and living longer. For most of human history, families looked like a pyramid, with few older members at the top and many young members at the bottom. Today, families are shaped more vertically, like a beanpole, with a more equal number of members in each generation. With fewer family members in each generation, intergenerational relationships can take on added significance.

Lies can only lead to bigger trouble, in many cases, and even though we want to think our children would never lie to us, they will, at least once in a while.

Do you tell the funniest jokes? Do you volunteer and want us all to know about it? Are you an artist, a musician, a yoga teacher? Do you have a job? What are you? We are a nation of GRAND grandparents, and you are one of them. Join us. Let’s see what grandparents are up to in 2019.
