Resources for grandparents parenting grandchildren

Publication type: 
Brochure

Many Prince Edward Island grandparents are the primary caregivers for their grandchildren. Although emotionally rewarding, parenting a grandchild can be challenging. Some grandparents may feel isolated, uncertain, or stressed. Many grandparents may also experience financial difficulties.

If you are a grandparent raising a grandchild, remember that you are not alone. The Raising a Second Generation resource document includes information on legal, financial, and support services available in PEI communities that may be helpful.
