Increasingly grandparents are being asked to take on the role of carers and be an alternative to child-care centres and after school care. For many grandparents, this can be a daunting prospect. Even experienced grandparents might struggle to find ways to keep children entertained and occupied for the entire day. That’s where Modern Grandparenting comes in. This comprehensive book contains over 180 time-tested, enjoyable and creative activities that stimulate imagination and creativity, and encourage children away from the TV, tablets and devices.
Modern Grandparenting offers helpful advice on a wealth of issues that grandparents can face – such as negotiating often delicate family situations, using new technologies, understanding child development and dealing with the stress of school holidays. It is all there to help you survive and thrive in the vital role of being a modern grandparent!
