At least a 4 year under-grad study at a university followed by 2 years post-grad study. The actual courses that you take with your post-grad studies will help alot, such as a child and family course.

Fairly old because you would have to raise your children (that is at least 20 years), they would have a child ( that makes a grandparent). The child would have a child ( that makes a great grandparent) and the child would have a child ( this makes a great great grandparent), so this is at least 80 years if each reached 20 before having a child.
