What we thought:

The modern world can isolate the nuclear family, leaving grandparents sidelined by lack of time, distance or divorce. In the latest in her series of sensible and useful parenting books, social worker (and Parent24 expert) Anne Cawood addresses these and many other issues relating to the role of grandparents in the family.

Among the many aspects coevred is the age-old tussle between parents with new attitudes to child-rearing, and grandparents who believe that what worked for them is the correct way to do things. She also discussed how grandparents can provide a stable emotional haven for children when parents split up. In her empathetic and practical way, Cawood describes different family experiences, and how they can be dealt with to maintain good communication and relationships between grandparent, parent and child.
