Description

Grandparenting is one of the greatest joys in life. Most “grandboomers” are young, active, and anxious to be involved in the lives of their grandchildren. However, grandparenting in the twenty-first century is often complicated by long distances, family breakups, and remarriage. Based on solid evidence from the experts combined with inspirational – and sometimes funny – real-life stories from grandparents, parents, and grandchildren, Intentional Grandparenting provides readers with ten child-centred principles to guide their decision-making as modern grandparents. At the heart this approach is the notion of intentional grandparenting, a process for planning ahead and taking deliberate action to be the kind of grandparent you want to be. The authors identify the challenges and offer practical, parent-friendly advice to help boomers become happy and effective grandparents. Written in an accessible and engaging style, Intentional Grandparenting is at once entertaining and informative.
