The Sixty Minute Grandparent

The Sixty Minute Grandparent

‘If you have children, buy this book for your parents now. If you are a grandparent, don’t go near your grandchildren until you have read it!’ Rosemary Conley

There are many different kinds of grandparents – tired-out or over-eager, super-involved or unsure how to help, unwilling or ever-ready. In this simple book Rob Parsons will help you reach the common aspiration: to be the best grandparent that you can possibly be.

– The baby stage: helping out without interfering
– How to help your own children find their way as parents
– Loving your grandchildren without spoiling them
– When to intervene, and when to keep out of it
– Finding your place within a blended family
– Becoming invaluable (rather than insufferable) to your daughter-in-law

Rob wrote a piece for Saga Online about Grandparenting:
On SIXTY MINUTE FATHER: 'Sixty minutes that could save the regret of lost family opportunities.'
<i>The Guardian</i>
On SIXTY MINUTE FATHER: 'For all those fathers who know, somewhere in their hearts, that their children's lives are slipping by while they are too busy to notice.'
<i>Daily Mirror</i>
On SIXTY MINUTE MARRIAGE: 'Wise and witty. Full of down-to-earth advice that works.'
Lynda Lee Potter
Rob's book - which can be read in about an hour - also offers advice. It contains chapters on providing childcare while parents are working, how to be a good grandparent from a distance, coping when a grandchild's parents separate and how to build relationships with new step-grandchildren.
Claire Brine, The War Cry
On SIXTY MINUTE FATHER: 'A brilliant book.'
