Chick Moorman, author, father, and grandfather, thought he had done
it all. At different times in his life, he experienced full-time parenting,
weekend parenting, and step-parenting. He even single-parented his teenage
son for several years. After 20 years of traveling around the country
teaching other people how to parent, without warning he became another
statistic in the ever-growing number of grandparents who are raising
Chelsea, age 15 and Austin, age 11 moved in with Chick full time and
had to adjust to a new school, new state, and new experiences for them.
Chick's life changed too, as he became one of only 125,000 men raising
grandchildren as a single grandparent. During the four years that Chick
single-parented his grandchildren, he relearned that the skills he teaches
work if you work the skills.
