Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine parental involvement within Latino kinship families. Data were gathered through in depth focus groups, where grandparents shared their experience in relation to parental involvement. The sample included 12 grandparents from which, seven indicated inheriting the role of caregiver due to birth parents being involved with substances. Several birthparents remain involved in the lives of their children; however, the interactions are not always positive. The results suggest that parental involvement within Latino kinship families is complex. Implications for social work practice and policy are also discussed.
