Balancing grandparenting and work is becoming more common.
The average age to become a grandma in the U.S. is 50 years old, and it’s possible you were even younger. This means that working moms aren’t the only ones who are trying to balance family life and career – nanas are too.
Professor Madonna Harrington Meyer is the author of the book “Grandmothers at Work.” She has talked to many working nanas about their strategies, struggles, and successes as they juggle jobs and grandkids. She shares what she’s learned.
