About the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Toolbox 

Sadly for many of the children who come into grandparent or whanau care, their early lives have already been exposed to the perils of drug and alcohol abuse, family violence, and neglect.

These experiences can have a lasting impact on how they behave and view the world.  This parenting course provides a helpful insight into this and the common challenges caregivers face from toddlers to teens. The DVDs contain six sessions which provide helpful practical skills and strategies for grandparenting effectively – as well as caring for yourself too.

Featured in the videos are some of New Zealand's best loved personalities including Dame Alison Holst and Bob Kerridge (grandparents themselves), Pio Terei, and of course our very own founder Diane Vivian.
