    I just read about an agency in Berlin called 'rent a granny'. A retired person (women only I'm afraid) give their services for free or for a small payment to help out single parents - but it could be anyone. The article talks about how that person often gets involved in the family - and some real grandparents can get jealous. It would be great if retired people could help younger people out like this - as it's often the case that parents aren't close by to help their own children etc - then the opportunities for those younger people being involved and supportive would be much greater.
