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
