The new 'silver' generation of grandmothers is savvy, sophisticated and busy with their own lives. How can they nurture their grandchildren? This handbook provides encouragement for grandmothers with the real issues they face today. Seven sections of essays challenge grandmothers to become healers, peacemakers and repairers of the breach in families. Topics, both humorous and serious, include the importance of choosing a name, getting wrinkles, blended families, dying and much more.
