When caregivers begin caring for kinship children, there is a shift in family relationships and roles that also must change. Moving from a grandparent to a parent, an aunt to a parent, or even a neighbor to a parent, can be a difficult adjustment on the caregiver, the kinship child, and the family as a whole. Learning how to adjust to this role change in the midst of parenting again in today’s culture, can be a confusing and intimidating challenge.  In this webinar, we explore this transition from relative or friend to parent and caretaker, including how to help the family and the kinship child learn to adjust as well. While no transition is easy or even quick, understanding how to be a parent and caregiver for your new kinship family is an important aspect of kinship caregiving.
