Grandparents talk by Janice Marriott( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Being close to grandchildren is a privilege. It lets us have some input into the future.' Most grandparenting doesn't feature in the fromal statistics. As these grandparents talk, their words reveal the varied and often heroic role that grandparents play in today's families: the heartache of long-distance grandparenting, the sacrifices some people make to keep their grandkids safe and well, the sports coaching, the school pick-up, the concerns about the future. This book shows how and why grandparents do this work, and celebrates the unique bond between grandparents and their grandchildren. While the different ethnicities, migrant backgrounds and family groupings reflect our varied and changing society, the role of grandparents maintains a link to the past and a bond with the future
