Overview

Becoming a grandparent is one of the happiest and most eagerly awaited events in the lives of most adults. Grandparents Break the Rules empowers grandparents to develop their own strategies so that they can have a positive impact on their grandchildren's lives. In a no-nonsense style, the author examines each rule of grandparenting and seeks to clarify, explain, and rewrite the "book" on what to expect from grandparents and, perhaps more importantly, what not to expect. She covers many sensitive issues in a subtle and non-threatening style, including: grandparents' role in babysitting; spoiling grandchildren; scolding or disciplining; involvement in situations of divorce, custody, or illness; and differing parenting styles between generations.

Editorial Reviews

Harry F. Rosenthal
Kettmann, a child development specialist, parent and grandparent...suggests grandparenting with a bright new twist. . . . The section of bringing fun ideas to the grandchildren is worth the entire price for the paperback book. . . . This is not the first book of this type to come to this column's attention, but it is the best.

The 12 Rules of Grandparenting is 'must' reading for anyone who has become a grandparent and wishes to fully enjoy the experience, or must deal with disruption in the lives of their grandchildren and in need of sound advice on what to do.
