    Highly recommended and practical guide

    The Granny-Nanny: A Guide For Parents & Grandparents Who Share Child Care by Lee Edwards Benning (himself a real life granny-nanny) is a wonderfully informative, thoroughly 'user friendly', 223-page manual specifically written for parents and grandparents who share child care responsibilities. This is a parenting phenomena which has become more common in the past 15 years, according to documentation by the Cleveland Clinic Press, as at least 79% of today's grandparents will engage in the tribulations and satisfaction of daily child care due to the children's parents having to both work outside of the home. Individual chapters deal with a variety of germane issues such as child safety, communication, controversy (including discipline), abuse, the generation gap, whose home is to be used, and even a quiz which is both humorous and descriptive. There is an especially valuable chapter offering suggestions about dealing with common issues and problems called 'Making the Best of It' which covers divorce, special needs, and ending the relationship (which really is about deciding when child care needs to be provided by someone other than the granny), for a vast variety of reasons. Grandparents' rights are discussed, as are financial arrangements and pertinent legal questions. Finally, a series of very helpful appendices provide resource suggestions including activities, age-appropriate books and toys, child care accreditation services, and a granny-nanny refresher course. Filly a genuine and pressing need, The Granny-Nanny is a very highly recommended and practical guide for parents and grandparents who are about to embark upon a great co-parenting adventure together.
