"Historically, grandparents have always provided care," says Madonna Harrington Meyer, University Professor of Sociology and author of Grandmothers at Work. "What we’re seeing now is grandparents providing care that looks a lot more like parenting: more hours and more tasks." Harrington Meyer was interviewed for the Christian Science Monitor article "Beyond birthday cards and hugs: The rise of intensive grandparenting." 09/20/19
