About Our Site

ProudGrandparents was formed to offer a unique reference point on being a grandparent.

Becoming a grandparent can be one of life’s greatest joys, but it is not without its own unique challenges. Today’s kids are often quite mature compared to those of a few generations ago, and modern grandparents are a bit different than their predecessors, too.

Grandparenting is no longer just about baking cookies and bouncing little ones on the knee, grandparents today are often busy with careers and social obligations, so tips on balancing work and family may be just what the doctor ordered. Additionally, more children are being raised by their grandparents than ever before, requiring that grandparents stay informed about their legal and financial rights. We strive to provide solidly researched articles that are written to inform and offer support, many of us are grandparents ourselves.

If you’ve come in search of reliable information about choosing appropriate children’s equipment, studies in child sleep safety, ideas for entertaining grandchildren of all ages, or ways to build strong family bonds, welcome. You’ve come to the right place. Our writers are dedicated to providing today’s busy grandparents with the accurate information they need about everything from the latest trends in gift-giving to keeping traditions alive. And if you were to ask, we could probably even come up with a few pretty good cookie recipes!

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.
