Kinship Caregiving:
Managing Relationships with the Child's Parent

In this curriculum parents and caregivers will learn about the unique challenges that kinship caregivers face when raising a relative’s child. Understanding how those challenges impact a healthy co-parenting relationship will lay the groundwork for learning how shared parenting in a kinship arrangement is good for all the members involved. Parents and caregivers will also learn tools for defining the changing roles in this arrangement to keep the child’s best interests at the center of their relationships. Finally, the curriculum will also highlight practical suggestions for building the foundation for a healthy co-parenting relationship with adult children or other family members while caring for their relative child.

Parents will leave the support group with a better understanding of the following topics.

  • The difference between fostering and kinship care and the unique challenge that presents.
  • The benefits of building a healthy co-parenting relationship with the child’s parents for the child’s best interests even while roles must change.
  • How to build a co-parenting relationship in kinship caregiving to keep the adults involved connected in positive, healthy ways.

*This curriculum includes a video, facilitator guide, and handouts.
