The rewards of loving and fulfilling relationships with grandchildren and great-grand-children.
Grandparents have changed! The stereotype of the fragile, white-haired retiree has been shattered. Today's grandparents are active and involved- in everything from careers to fitness to dating. They are "thirty-something" to one hundred plus- and every age in between. Grandparent's roles have also changed, as have many of their situations. While some may be grandparenting within a "traditional" family, others may be facing new challenges such as: acting as a stablizing force during times of family upheaval, providing day care for a grandchild, furnishing temporary living arrangements for an adult child and grandchild, filling the role of "Mom" and "Dad" for a grandchild, blending stepgrandchildren with biological grandchildren. Whatever the unique situation, parenting experts Jim Fay and Foster W Cline, M.D., show grandparents how to develop enjoyable, fulfilling relationships with both thier adult children- while helping grandchildren grow into responsible, caring young people.
