Be the best grandparent you can be - in just one hour.
'If you have children, buy this book for your parents now. If you are a grandparent, don't go near your grandchildren until you have read it!' - Rosemary Conley
There are many different kinds of grandparents - tired-out or over-eager, super-involved or unsure how to help, unwilling or ever-ready. In this simple book Rob Parsons will help you reach the common aspiration: to be the best grandparent that you can possibly be.
It includes advice on topics such as:
- the baby stage: helping out without interfering;
- how to help your own children find their way as parents;
- loving your grandchildren without spoiling them;
- when to intervene, and when to keep out of it;
- finding your place within a blended family;
- and becoming invaluable (rather than insufferable) to your daughter-in-law.
