Research: Some Stats on Grand Parenting

Today 82 percent of the grand parents have seen a grandchild in the past month, and 72 percent have shared a meal with or purchased a gift for a grand child within that time. Fifteen percent are regular caregivers, 3 percent are raising a grandchild, and of the rest, 44 percent see a grand child, every week.
