2012-12-05 16:56:19 - The calm, graying grannies of the past have morphed to spirited, perhaps less patient, grandparents of today. When Good Grandparents Go Bad teaches that being imperfect is OK, as long as there's love!
Denver, CO, and Newport, OR – Gone are the days of the sweet, ever-calm, gray-haired grandma and grandpa of the past, patiently delivering homespun wisdom along with home-baked cookies. Say hello to the grandparents of the 2010s: younger, more spirited – and perhaps less patient. Grandmother and author Christine Allen provides a must-read guidebook on the joys of grandparenthood in the modern age with When Good Grandparents Go Bad, published by Outskirts Press.
Written as a “children's book for adults,” When Good Grandparents Go Bad explores this most special and anticipated milestone in an older adults' life, when the times comes to spoil and nurture their children's children.
The first time or two, a grandparent may feel his or her grandbabies are
perfect – and want to be perfect too. After all, everyone had a pair or two of saintly, graying grandparents who nary had a harsh word, never scolded or yelled, and certainly never cursed, right? But, in truth, grandchildren aren't always perfect: Sometimes they're annoying, grating on the last, fragile nerve just like their parents did when they were little. And sometimes the grandparent of today channels the frazzled parent of yesteryear and responds in a way he regrets. Does it matter? What does?
Allen answers these questions and more in When Good Grandparents Go Bad, so readers can feel better about who they are, who their grandchildren really are and what really matters in a family.
