Increasingly, women today find ourselves becoming grandmothers in ways our grandmothers could never have imagined, as our children become step-parents; adopt infants or older children locally or internationally; marry or partner with someone of a different race, religion, or of the same gender; conceive through in-vitro fertilization; become single parents by choice; partnered but not married parents, as well as what Grandma would have called a "traditional" family.
How do you deal with the flood of often-conflicting emotions as your "baby" becomes a parent? How can you stay connected with far-away toddler? How can you help your beloved teenaged grandchild navigate the world of cyber-bullying, academic pressure, tattoos and piercings - as well as his/her own parents?
Based on interviews with dozens of women and written by a savvy, empathic, and smart grandmother, Becky Sarah's GRANDMOTHERING "tells it like it is" - and provides practical, sensitive guidance and helpful tips for expectant, new, and experienced grandmothers alike.
