The squish generation is evolving rapidly. We are seeing many families raising their children while looking after ageing parents. It can be a happy time being able to look after all your loved ones. It can also be a stressful time. Stretching your days between work, children, aging parents and running a home. To compound this many families live in different cities so there is also the travel time to go between the homes. It may be a time to look at how our ancestors lived with 2 or 3 generations living in one home or having a couple of homes on the same property. Grandparents can help raise grandchildren and when the grandparents need help as they age, their children and grandchildren are there to help.
