    Hello :)

    I'm wondering whether "a skip-generation family" is a common name for a family where grandparents raise their grandchildren (without parents).

    Thank you

    Hello Hotmale

    I don't think I've ever heard "skip-generation family".

    Where did you come across it?

    Hi Loob :)

    I've come across this term on the internet while I was searching for some information about the types of familes, eg. extended or nuclear.
