Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The essential guide for contemporary grandparents, who are as eager to continue their vibrant, active lifestyles as they are to enjoy their grandchildren

Totally Cool Grandparenting recognizes that unlike previous generations, today's grandparents continue with their careers and activities well into their grandparenting years. Totally Cool Grandparenting explains how these modern grandparents can participate in the traditional, joyous responsibilities of their role, but without the traditional bells and whistles. With clear, upfront advice, humor, and time-tested tactics, gathered from not only personal experience but dozens of interviews with grandparents — and grandkids — across the country, Linsley covers such topics as:
-- Spoiling the grandkids without annoying the parents
-- Giving gifts that the kids will like
-- Handling The Visit, from an hour of babysitting to a holiday vacation
-- Coping with modern methods of communication
-- Choosing a moniker: Granny and Gramps or just Doris and Bill?
-- and much more.
