The Irish Times has some interesting articles in its Health Supplement today on the role of Grandparents in the development and 'parenting' of their grandchildren.
Of interest to all, but perhaps most relevant to those currently on the MA in Child, Family and Community Studies.
There is input from Professor Virpi Timonen of the school of social work and social policy at Trinity College Dublin, who co-edited Contemporary Grandparenting: Changing Family Relationships in Global Contexts. A copy of this book is being held behind the desk in the library for those who wish to consult it.
We have also ordered an e-book version of this book so that it will be available online to users. We will let you know when it is available.
