GrandLoving: Making Memories with Your Grandchildren

By Randy L. Thurman | Master Key Publications

Incorporating advice from more than 350 families nationwide, GrandLoving offers specific tips for bonding with grandchildren, from babies to teens. Along with a completely revised resource section, the fifth edition features expanded sections on Skype, texting and social networking (including Facebook, Flickr, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube). Among the guide’s hints are more than 225 easy, low-cost, do-together and long-distance activities for successful visits, holidays and family traditions. While primarily intended for use by grandparents, the book’s strategies and suggestions can also help daycare providers, separated parents, extended family members and teachers grow closer to the children in their lives.
