An extensive, imaginative and entertaining resource containing over 180 games and activities to enjoy with your grandchildren.
The 55+ age group in Australia counts for 24 per cent of the population and 56 per cent of the wealth (ABS). However, with greater wealth, better health and longevity comes increased responsibility to help out young families, especially when both parents have to work to make ends meet. Modern Grandparenting is a comforting, friendly and useful read for grandparents, especially those who are feeling bewildered about the options available to entertain children in today’s tech-dominated world. Grandparents play a vital role in their grandchildren’s lives.
Grandparenting can be joyous, but it can also be tricky, challenging and frequently chaotic. And there are no courses on becoming a grandparent. It just happens. One day you’re not a grandparent. The next day you are. However not every grandparenting experience is a bed of roses. Sometimes when you return home from a visit to the grandchildren, or when you close the door as the last grandchild disappears down the garden path, you can be left a shadow of your energetic, enthusiastic and independent self. This book will help you survive grandparenting. You can be a grandparent of the highest order yet.

This is a great book not only for grandparents but also for anyone who engages in child care. The activities are simple, engaging and fun filled. I borrowed a copy of this book from my library and found it so good that I knew I had to buy one.
