ece355 week 2 discussion 2 RESPONSE a.b., Psychology homework help
Share at least one similarity (I live in California so please find a different and similarity) and one difference about the information shared in their summary about their state. In addition, provide one additional way in which they could support families where the grandparents are raising their grandchildren.
Summarize the information on your state’s fact sheet.
The state of New York has a lot of items concerning the summer and the different topics that have to do with the events going on. There is an article that talks about resources for grandparents and it is call the Kinship Navigator, and it gives financial support to the grandparents that are raising their grandchildren. There is a 1-800 number to call to get more information and to talk to a representative. That’s all there really is on the New York website for AARP.
Explain the impact this type of situation may have on family relationships and the development of the child.
I think that there is an impact on the children, and on the grandparents as well. The children may be confused and not understand what is going on with their parents. There may be difficult situations between the parents and children that can cause a strain on the grandparents and grandchildren’s relationship. The grandparents may be too burned out, and old to take proper care of the little ones. It can be hard for a young parent to keep up with toddlers, let alone a grandparent. There can also be health issues that the grandparents are dealing with, which can make it that much harder for them to care for their grandchildren.
Discuss your role in supporting families where the grandparents are raising their grandchildren.
My role in supporting families with the grandparents raising their grandchildren is to be there if they need anything, or need help finding resources to help them. I can also help them get in contact with the family workers so that they can get all the help they need, and get all the services that they qualify for. There are a lot of resources available to grandparents , and websites like, http://www.grandfamilies.org (Links to an external site.), http://www.gu.org/OURWORK/Grandfamilies (Links to an external site.), and http://www.kinsupport.org (Links to an external site.) that can give advice, and help grandparents get funding for taking care of their grandchildren. Even going to your county’s local DSS to get SNAP benefits, and daycare funding if needed, every little bit helps.
