Full Product Description

  • For anyone who has become a grandparent
  • This book from Robert Parsons is an encouraging guide to grandparenting
  • In just a hour you'll be better equipped to become the best grandparents you can be

Grandparents are often more excited and prouder of their children’s children than they were of their own kids. And they’ve learned the hard way – so they have lots of experience to share with the new parents, and lost of good things to lavish on new grandchildren… whether they want it or not.

Rob Parsons helps new grandparents avoid the pitfalls of grandparenthood making them into the best grandparents ever, loved and welcomed by parents and grandchildren.

Starting with the baby stage his 60 minutes of solid advice and guidance shows you how to help without interfering, and how to help their children find their own way as new parents.

He shows how to love your children and grandchildren without spoiling them, and when to intervene and when to keep well away. Most of all he helps you find your new role and blend into the newly enlarged family becoming an invaluable asset that new parents can’t imagine life without. ‘How would we manage if grandpa and grandma weren’t as wonderful as they are? Thank God we have them to help us.’

The Sixty Minute Grandparent by Rob Parsons was published by Hodder and Stoughton in April 2013 and is our 9894th best seller. The ISBN for The Sixty Minute Grandparent is 9781444745696.
