Mom’s Who Live with Parents at Risk for Depression
Mom’s Who Live with Parents at Risk for Depression

Almost half of all U.S. children born to single mothers will spend at least some time living in a multi-generational household, but a researcher says living with grandparents may increase the risk of depression.

Joy Piontak, a Duke University research analyst, said that during an infant’s first year of life, married or single new moms living with grandparents have higher rates of depression. “There’s a strong expectation that married couples will be economically self-sufficient,” Piontak said in a statement. “Those are strong cultural values. So there could be a stronger sense of failure among married couples if they have to live with their parents.”
