You're used to running the show -- calling the shots on everything from nutrition and bedtime to discipline, homework, and social matters. But, you're not the mother anymore -- you're the grandma. You need a special approach in order to play a positive role and enjoy your new status. This book, written with wit and good sense by a mother and grandmother team, provides positive solutions to such generational problems as: how to be a vital part of the family even if you're 3,000 miles away; how to overcome the "grandma knows best, but no one ever listens" syndrome; how to enjoy conflict-free visits and vacations; how to be influential without being a "backseat driver"; how to identify and relate to each stage of your grandchild's development; how to help your grandchildren deal with divorce; how to relate to your in-laws without becoming an outlaw. - Back cover.
