Question description

some grandparents are geographically distanced from their grandchildren and some live nearby. Some grandparents co-reside with their grandchildren but remain in a grandparent role. Grandparents with legal custody of grandchildren are known as "custodial grandparents." Custodial grandparents are not acting in a grandparenting role but a parent role. The assumption of the parent role is often preceded by a triggering event that prevents the parent or parents from caring for their children. There are numerous reasons why grandparents assume this role, both positive and negative.

Discuss the factors that influence the decision to assume legal custody of grandchildren. What social supports and interventions exist for custodial grandparents? Explore one theoretical underpinning that speaks to the adjustment of custodial grandparenting. Discuss the positive and negative impacts of custodial grandparenting. Support your discussion with references to the professional literature.
