If you are raising your grandchildren, you are doing a lot of good work. Whether the parents are absent or unfit to raise their own kids, your stepping in is commendable.
Each family in Wisconsin has a different family dynamic. No family is quite the same as another, but the hope is that children in the families are being cared for properly. There is no one right way to care for a child, but their needs must be met. Also, the children need to be in a safe environment. However, not all parents are able to provide the proper care. Some have drug or alcohol addictions or other issues that prevent them from being proper parents. In situations like this more and more grandparents are stepping in to raise the children.
