This handbook includes a wealth of practical ideas, such as how to baby-proof your home, how to stay in touch (including cyber-grandparenting), and how you can best support your adult children as they become parents. Informative and fun, this book is an indispensable tool for anyone entering this challenging and rewarding life stage.
