From the Back Cover

You thought there could never be a love like the love you have for your child. But then you held your first grandchild. The emotions that flooded you focused to an intense desire to protect and make his or her world secure. Yet it’s no breaking news that children face a vastly different world from the one you grew up in—or even the world your children knew. The forces of popular culture are no longer child-friendly. Too often, attitudes and ideas all around us obstruct character formation in children, rather than build it up. Although you long to know that your grandchild will be safe and secure in such a world, maybe you live a great distance away. Or perhaps there’s some friction between you and your grandchild’s parents, or maybe you just don’t keep up with your grandchild’s interests the way you would like. Whatever your circumstances, being a grandparent is a unique and wonderful opportunity to stand in the gap against the often dark and discouraging elements of our culture in order to positively influence your grandchild’s future. How to Really Love Your Grandchild is a book of hope and encouragement for you to provide the extra love and emotional support that only a grandparent can give. Through stories that read like your own life, Dr. Ross Campbell’s I’m-in-this-with-you advice will provide failsafe ways to stay close to your grandchildren—no matter what.

In this rapidly evolving, volatile, and complex world, our children are growing up today having to experience and deal with different pressures, ways of amusement, music and technologies that many grandparents may not be accustomed to. Dr. Ross Campbell draws upon his more than thirty years as a clinical psychiatrist and parent/child relationship expert in writing "How to Really Love Your Grandchild... in an Ever-Changing World", a thoughtful, down-to-earth parenting guide specifically for grandparents who are involved in the lives of their grandchildren. Those grandparents will delight in the stories and benefit from the advice that is presented through an "I'm-in-this-with-you" approach by Dr. Campbell. Encouraging and thoughtful "How to Really Love Your Grandchild... in an Ever-Changing World" provides useful and practical insights to grandparents on just how to go about providing the extra love and emotional support that only a grandparent can give a grandchild. If there is friction between the grandparent and their grandchild's parents, or if a grandparent hasn't kept up with a grandchild's interest the way they would have liked to, no matter what the situation that arises in the relationship, "How to Really Love Your Grandchild... in an Ever-Changing World" offers sound, accessible, 'user friendly' advice on bridging the gap so a grandparent can be there for their grandchild. "How to Really Love Your Grandchild... in an Ever-Changing World" is especially recommended for community library Parenting Studies reference collections and reading lists.

Format: Hardcover
"How To Really Love Your Grandchild" is a valuable tool for parents, grandparents, and anyone who aspires to one of those roles. This non-fiction title by D. Ross Campbell begins with charming quotes from his own grandchildren about what Grandparents mean to them. It ends with helpful resources: a study guide and a list of how to get the most out of the book.

The beauty of this book is that it looks at grand-parenting from the non-traditional roles that grandparents now encounter including distance relationships and being a parent rather than a grandparent. This would be a wonderful reading group pick for grandparents.

I read this while on vacation with our five grandchildren and found it very helpful. The insights are clear yet very profound--I read the book in a few hours but reflected on it for several days and discussed some of the ideas with my husband and daughter. The principles is applicable to anyone who relates to children, not just grandparents. I especially found the chapters on love and on anger helpful. Campbell also gives some real-world advice on making the transition from a child-free environment to spending time with grandkids when whining and irritations are involved (just about any time you are with a child!), It was encouraging to read and comforting to know some of my impatience is normal and yet can be overcome. Highly recommended if you are going to be interacting with kids.
