With sales of over 350,000 copies of her parenting books, Judy Ford, a contributor to Family Circle magazine, is fast becoming America's pre-eminent parenting expert. Now she takes on the second most important task in the creation of a warm, nurturing family -- grandparenting. Thanks to the Baby Boom Echo, there are more grandparents now than at any other time in history. Yet, grandparenting has been a relatively ignored topic, with folks operating on the philosophy that it simply requires the same skills as parenting.
Not so, asserts Ford. Grandparenting requires very specialized skills and grandparents have lots of joy to give and receive. "Grandparenting is a gift between two people at opposite ends of their journey", she explains.
Written with warmth and heart, Wonderful Ways to Love a Grandchild teaches readers how to honor the unique role grandparents play and offers a wide variety of ways they can actively participate in their grandchildren's lives, whether they live down the block or across the country. She gives practical tips for being more than a purveyor of presents, and ways to complement and not conflict with parents on issues such as discipline. Ford also covers tougher topics such as dealing with aging and death with children, and forging strong bonds with your grandchildren's parents and in-laws, even if they're divorced.
Chapter highlights show how to "Write Them Love Letters", "Tell Your Life Story in Stages", "Rise Above the Small Stuff", and "Make Every Day Count". Supplemented by a reference guide to great specialty catalogs, books, and magazines, and support groups, Wonderful Ways to Love a Grandchild is a must-have for all grandparents.
