The Essential Grandparent: by Dr. Lillian Carson
Author: Lillian Carson
|A Guide to Making a Difference|
Ready or not, you're a grandparent! How did you get here so fast? No one consults you about this new role. It is handed to you without your advice or consent. So now that you're here at this new stage of life, the question before you is, what are you going to make of it?
This book will help you find your answer and assist you
in developing a plan for your grandparenting. It will
dispel the myths and "tell it like it is." You'll learn that
other grandparents feel just as you do. It will guide you
to become aware of the possibilities, encourage you to
trust your intuition, and teach you how to set goals so
that you can make the most of this essential role. Just as babies don't come with instructions
for parents, they certainly don't come with instructions for grandparents!
The joys of grandparenting are available to all. It's healthy for us, the older generation, to
nurture the young. It is our natural task to influence the future in this way. There are no
requirements for a grandparent to be of a certain color, educational level, lifestyle or
economic class. However, just loving our children and grandchildren is not enough. The joy
comes from our ingenuity, energy and determination to provide stability and purpose. It is
ours for the doing.
