Item description for The Essential Grandparent: A Guide to Making a Difference by Lillian Carson & Carson...

Today's societal pressures threaten families as never before. With divorce rates skyrocketing and parents spending more time at work and less at home, grandparents more than ever play an essential role in shaping the lives of their grandchildren. Here Carson honors grandparenthood, dispelling granparenting myths and helping readers develop their own grandparenting strategy in order to make the most of this rewarding stage in life.

Publishers Description

Ready or not, you're a grandparent How did you get here so fast? No one consults you about this new role. It is handed to you without your advice or consent. So now that you're here at this new stage of life, the question before you is, what are you going to make of it?

This book will help you find your answer and assist you in developing a plan for your grandparenting. It will dispel the myths and "tell it like it is." You'll learn that other grandparents feel just as you do. It will guide you to become aware of the possibilities, encourage you to trust your intuition, and teach you how to set goals so that you can make the most of this essential role. Just as babies don't come with instructions for parents, they certainly don't come with instructions for grandparents

The joys of grandparenting are available to all. It's healthy for us, the older generation, to nurture the young. It is our natural task to influence the future in this way. There are no requirements for a grandparent to be of a certain color, educational level, lifestyle or economic class. However, just loving our children and grandchildren is not enough. The joy comes from our ingenuity, energy and determination to provide stability and purpose. It is ours for the doing.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Essential Grandparent: A Guide to Making a Difference?

A very important contribution to contemporary life.  Oct 16, 1996
This is a specific, honest, clear and easily readable book. Parents and grandparents alike will appreciate the insights afforded through Dr. Carson's unique ability to concisely capture common experience and problems. There was a dearth of material relating to the special bond between grandparents and grandchildren, which happily has now been filled through this work. Bravo!
