'Sandwich Generation' Avoids Unnecessary Stress While Tending to Aging Senior Parents
Date:12/8/2009

NEW YORK, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Parenting a family of any size or configuration is tough. So imagine raising two families. But the difference is that in this "second family," the parenting does not involve more children. It has to do with parenting aging senior parents.
