It also shares infor­ma­tion on com­pan­ion dis­cus­sion guides that help view­ers bet­ter under­stand kin­ship care and how it is dif­fers from non­rel­a­tive fos­ter care.

More than 2.7 mil­lion chil­dren live with grand­par­ents or oth­er rel­a­tives today,” Feild says. There­fore, it’s impor­tant to talk about ways kin care­givers can man­age the con­flict­ing emo­tions that sur­face when rais­ing chil­dren whose par­ents are unable to do so.”
