About

Recycled Moms came into being because I have seen a huge increase in kinship care. Our children are at risk. Over 85 percent of men in prison grew up without a father figure in their lives. We can prevent that by being proactive when our Grands are small. I realize many grandfathers are also stepping up and taking a part in raising their grandchildren. Thank you for that. However as a woman, I do not know how to speak for you. I encourage grandfathers to start a blog about this issue.

Please feel free to share these posts and this blog on Facebook, Twitter and any other place it might help someone. Thank you for your interest.

    In so many countries worldwide, men turn their backs on their families and walk freely away while women are left to pick up the pieces, both children and grandchildren. But I don’t hear men who believe in the family unit making a stand against this. Is it because they have lost confidence in their role in life? Are we too busy idolizing male movie stars who strut their prowess by having many women, while the “real” man who stays with the same partner and works hard all his life to support his family is scoffed at? How sad! We as women need to condone kind, supportive, men who show love and faithfulness to their families. They are the best!

    Hi!

    My name is Esther and I am with an organization called Caring Across Generations – we are a movement of caregivers and family members who are coming together to change our nation’s culture around aging and caregiving. I have been reading your blog and I think that you have a beautiful story to share.

    I wanted to ask if you would partner with Caring Across for our upcoming Grandparents Day campaign (Grandparents Day will be on Sunday, September 8). Through this campaign, we hope to honor and celebrate grandparents and to facilitate cultural change that will enable families to open up the conversation around aging and care.

    We are relying on grandparents and caregivers like you to help us spread the word about Grandparents Day and to share your own stories with us. Between August 22 and September 8, we would like to ask you to:

    Write a blog post about your grandparent, or about your experience as a grandparent. Possible topics are: a fond memory or a funny story about your grandparent, or lessons and advice from grandparents to their children or grandchildren.
    • Please send me an email at esther@caringacrossgenerations.org when you publish your GP Day blog post so that I can make sure to share it on the Caring Across website!

    Tweet or post on Facebook using the hashtag #granecdote. We hope to collect thousands of stories about grandparents by tracking the #granecdote hashtag. Here are some sample tweets/posts:
    • Just sent a postcard to grandma for #GrandparentsDay for free! Create & send your personalized card at caringacross.org/gpday!
    • [Insert story about or advice from grandparent] #granecdote Share yours at caringacross.org/gpday!

    We will happily share your blog post and #granecdotes through Caring Across’ social media channels, as well as host your blog post on our site!

    To learn more about us, check out the Caring Across website and facebook page. Our Grandparents Day landing page (caringacross.org/gpday) will launch on August 22nd. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you and collaborating for Grandparents Day!

    Best,
    Esther
