Publishers Description Grandchildren are one of life's sweetest gifts. Grandparents nurture faith best by loving their grandchildren, telling them stories from the past and celebrating family rituals and traditions. As grandparents, you may find yourself tiptoeing across eggshells whenever the subject of religion arises. But you still have the right to articulate the beliefs you hold with or without support from your children, says Carol Luebering in "When You Are a Grandparent." Luebering, a grandmother herself, discusses how grandparents can serve best as a sort of precatechetical resource: modeling God's love, being an advocate or listening ear and shaping a child's taste for ritual and tradition.

Reviews - What do customers think about When You Are a Grandparent (Handing on the Faith)?
a weaker entry in the series Jul 2, 2002
This is another volume in the Handing on the Faith series. This is a weaker volume in that it makes many assumptions about family relationships that may not translate into specific family situations: it makes little allowance for families in which the grandparents converted to Catholicism, for single parent families, for mixed marriages. It makes more allowance for the parents' (rather than grandparents') generation primarily in terms of non-practicing Catholics.
However, for traditional families dealing with handing on the faith in support of (or in spite of) parental religious education especially where physical distance presents a barrier, this volume is useful.
