I recently received another email from a student researching grandparents raising grandchildren. I am thrilled so many people are starting to research the topic. It is desperately needed. Below is the information I received from Yeva Hall Williamson. If you are raising teenagers, please email her to see if you qualify to be part of her research. She is needing around 100 grandparents.
Hello, my name is Yeva Hall Williamson. I am a graduate student with Walden University and I am writing a dissertation on the stress of parenting grandparents. I am attempting to fill a research gap by comparing grandparents of middle school children to those of high school children, taking a developmental approach to hypothesize that stress is different.
Contact Yeva at email@example.com or please pass this on to other grandparents who are raising teenagers.
Thank you for any help you may be.
