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 14664th best seller. The ISBN for The Sixty Minute Grandparent is 9781444745696.
After recently reading a parenting book, which rambled on for 300 pages, this book on grandparenting was a welcome contrast. It delivers what the title suggests, and after reading it - in 60 minutes (yes it can be done!) you will be well on the way to "becoming the best grandparent you can be", which is the book's sub-title.
Concise, well informed, and written with a commendable mix of common sense, wisdom and humour, this is a book I would recommend to all grandparents - would-be ones and those already 'underway’.
For Rob Parsons, a father and a grandfather, this book is another triumph to add to his previous books on parenthood, marriage and teenagers.
Beautifully produced - this small hardback is well worth the price and is wholeheartedly recommended.

'If you have children, buy this book for your parents now. If you are a grandparent, don't go near your grandchildren until you have read it!' - Rosemary Conley
