From the Back Cover:

An essential guidebook to get you through the highs and lows of modern-day grandparenting

Gone are the days when your role as a grandparent was easily definable as the provider of homemade cookies and a quick game of catch. Times have changed, and so have grandparents. You're healthier, wealthier, younger, and smarter than any previous generation. Families have also become far more diverse and complex, making the role of grandparent more complicated, unclear, and confusing. Fortunately, Arthur Kornhaber, M.D., can help you through the experience with The Grandparent Guide.

  • Learn how grandparenting can provide you with a powerful identity while conferring important meaning and influence on your life.
  • Gain an understanding of your critical importance in your grandchild's life and the many roles you play, each one giving you an opportunity to love, teach, and support.
  • Learn how to increase your coping skills and be an effective grandparent in any family situation.
  • Explore modern grandparenting issues that range from cybergrandparenting and adoption to families of same-sex parents and raising grandchildren yourself.
  • Learn how to support parents, who serve as the linchpin of your relationship with your grandchild.
  • Learn how you can be a positive role model for future generations of your family.

Also included in this authoritative guidebook are an extensive bibliography, lists of websites and support groups, and descriptions of recommended books and films on related subjects.

The Grandparent Guide is a priceless resource for all grandparents or soon-to-be grandparents, filled with invaluable information that you can refer to again and again as you cherish those special times with your grandchild.
