The purpose of this project is to develop a grandparent caregiver curriculum for those who are the primary caretakers of young grandchildren, This course will contain psycho-educational information in an effort to (a) increase participants' knowledge about contemporary parenting issues and concerns, (b) help participants' improve effective parenting skills, and (c) create a plan of personal self care. Grandparent caregivers who participate in this program will have the opportunity to strengthen parenting techniques and skills needed to prepare them for the challenges that children have in today's society. The curriculum will consist of six sessions that include supportive, educational, skill building, and a personal reflection component. Participants' who successfully complete the course will strengthen their parenting role and their ability to support their grandchildren's interpersonal, emotional, and academic development.
