Grand-Children the Great Joy They Are Supposed to Be Posted on January 8, 2019 by admin Grandparents all over the world are finding they are being thrust to parenting jobs, which leaves them drained and some unable to deal. The situation is driven by the need of parents to get ahead and they’re pushed by financial burdens and needs into a situation in which their children have to be cared for outside of the home. This involves child-minding by other people and it usually falls into the seniors in order to save money. The world has changed considerably in the days when women were home makers. Now it’s recognized that they have to do their but to bring in income and share the burden of home ownership and other things they require. Many are older and some infirm and only taking a kid in is a burden. In recent discussions with grandmothers who have this situation one, who’s over 60, has to take care of some 12 grandchildren during school vacations an at other times 6 of these. She listed the burden of cost as there’s no financial compensation for what she does. Meals, snacks, and even clothes are paid for from her pension. While a trip to the lake where there are amazing facilities for walking and spending play time the number of grandparents pushing young children in strollers or kicking balls around together around the oval is telling. This was particularly noticeable during the recent school holidays. There is no solution to this problem because the focus of everybody seems to be on making money rather than caring for children.
