US: Are We Helping Kids in ‘Kinship Care’? (Opinion) (Includes video)
Medscape – May 22, 2017
By 2013, 7.8 million (1 in 10) children in the United States were being raised in a home where the head of the household was a grandparent or other relative. There were at least 2.7 million children whose caregiver was identified as not being a biological parent. I can only imagine how much the number of such families has grown since then, begging the question: If there are so many families living in kinship care, are we sure that we are providing the most effective care for these families?
