Have questions about grandparenting? The Web offers ideas, answers

More than one in three baby boomers are grandparents with the average age being 53.

For baby boomers who have questions about becoming grandparents or what their role should be, the Web offers a wide variety of sources of information. Like all Internet research, you need to pick and choose from among the offerings. Some are very good, and some poor.

Below is a listing of Web sites on grandparenting.

  • The Foundation for Grandparenting is an organization that advocates for grandparents, promoting the importance of grandparenting as a role which gives important meaning and empowerment to later life, and benefits all family members.
  • Grand Media's mission is to provide grandparents of all ages and in all stages of life both information and inspiration. In addition to its Web site, it offers Grand Magazine.
  • is a Web site for active grandparents who want fresh ways to interact, stay connected, and strengthen family bonds.

Tomorrow's post on The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide will be on grandparents raising grandchildren.
