Grow Bold But Not Old

With the children’s parents being in prison, grandma has been the primary caretaker for the three children so they wouldn’t be sent to foster homes. In order to make ends meet and provide better care for the children, grandma has tried to get the most out of available resources and proactively seeks help from different parties, including the support from ChickenSoup.
