Being a Grandparent: Just Like Being a Parent ... Only Different

Great gift

I bought this book for my daughter's birthday. She is the grandmother of two small boys. When she started to read this book she could not put it down. She was impressed with the advice and said besides affirming some of the things she is already doing, it will give her confidence as the boys grow older.

Great book!

I enjoyed this book, and it made me laugh. Author Dr. Ray Guarendi is intelligent and witty. His openness to life in his marriage, his commitment to his family, and his profession as clinical psychologist, enable him to understand in a unique way what it takes to cultivate healthy large families. And he understands well the dynamics that ensue from having so many different personalities in the same room together. His advice is not solely for grandparents, it can benefit all in-laws, and all parents of married children, in my opinion. I’m not a grandparent yet (I’m the parent of small children at the moment), but I even got a lot out of reading this book. It helped me understand my own parents and grandparents a little better. And doesn’t understanding just make the world go around a little better? This book will surely encourage and equip many families with ideas and tools to all get along better with each other, and to enjoy each other’s company more, so we can get on with cultivating these awesome families that God has given us to love.

I have been enjoying the book immensely. The "chapters" are only a few pages and so I can open it to any page and spend a few minutes of stress-free reading. I find it so helpful that this week I gave it to my daughter to read as our precious 5-year old has been causing us some disagreements. I told daughter to call me out and point to the page when I "misbehave."

Dr. Ray Guarendi is a clinical psychologist, prolific author and speaker, and nationally syndicated radio host. His radio show, The Doctor Is In, can be heard weekdays on EWTN, Ave Maria Radio, and Sirius XM. His many books include Discipline That Lasts a LifetimeYou’re a Better Parent Than You Think, and Winning the Discipline Debates. He and his wife are the parents of ten children.
