The concept of family and parenting is incredibly diverse these days. The nuclear family is in decline; the extended family is advancing fast.
But what does extended family mean? Because its a big topic, Ive put Stepfamilies and Step Parenting into a separate category, along with Relationship Breakdown and Divorce.
However, as these article links, below, show all too clearly, that doesnt entirely deal with extended family. So, in addition to articles on parenting skills, Im including, here, those on grandparents caring for grandchildren, and those on baby boomers caring for elderly parents. In other words, the Sandwich Generation.
For links to articles on Personal Growth & Relationships including Transactional Analysis, the Drama Triangle, and a psychometric Personality Test, see below. COMING SOON

A Painful Post Mortem, by author, Mel Menzies inspired by the loss of my daughter, this novel is a contemporary story of grief and loss but, ultimately, one of enduring love, peace, and hope. Read about it and buy a copy of the book here. Or download the e-book here.
