After having your own children, becoming a grandparent is one of life's most exciting challenges. In the first Australian book of its type, renowned paediatrician and child advocate Dr Kim Oates, the former Chief Executive of the Children's Hospital at Westmead, explains how to negotiate the transition from parent to doting grandmother or grandfather.

So Now You're A Grandparent contains helpful suggestions on how to entertain grandchildren, ideas for outings, gifts and giving, safety advice and making preparations for overnight and longer stays; as well as more serious issues such as emergency situations, separation and divorce, and the death of a family member.

With grandparents living longer, the book also includes invaluable advice on how people can maintain a healthy lifestyle so that they can keep up with their grandchildren.
