Think you know what your role as a grandparent should be? You might be in for a bit of a surprise.

Grandparents can have a significant influence in a young person’s development, especially those who are helping to raise their grandchildren. That’s why we’ve developed a four-week email series to help you understand your role in your grandchild’s life.

Each week, you’ll receive information and advice on the most common challenges faced by today's grandparents, as well as a teaching activity and a social skill that you and your grandchild can work on together to develop a lasting, loving bond.
