What Every Modern Grandparent Needs To Know

Today's grandparents continue with their careers and activities well into their grandparenting years. Totally Cool Grandparenting explains how these modern grandmparents can participate in the traditional joyous reponsibilities of their role in up-to-date ways. With clear, upfront advice, humor, and time-tested tactics, gathered from personal experience and dozens of interviews with grandparents--and grandkids--across the country, Linsley covers such topics as:
Spoiling the grandchildren without annoying the parents
Giving gifts that the kids will like
Handling the visit, from baby-sitting to a holiday vacation
Tackling errands with grandkids in tow
Coping with modern methods of communication
Teaching, giving, and receiving respect
And much more

They always say children don't come with a manual, but thanks to Linsley, now grandkids do!
