Praise for Grandparenting: Renew, Relive, Rejoice
"The interesting thing about Grandparenting: Renew, Relive, Rejoice is not only that you learn a lot about your grandkids, but also, you learn a lot about yourself." - Bob Newhart, Comedian
“Grandparents are known for the many (sometimes too many) gifts that they lavish upon their grandkids. Most are gone and forgotten quickly. What if there was one gift you could give to yourself and your grandkids that would serve you both for the rest of your lives and provide a lasting bond? This book provides a path to the practice of mindfulness and opens the reader to a life well lived from the inside out. If you truly want to leave a legacy, make this book the cornerstone of your grandparent toolbox.” - Christine Crosby, Editorial Director GRAND Magazine
“For any grandparent interested in deepening their relationship with their grandchildren, this book delivers. Inspirational, thought-provoking, and a joy to read.” - Susan Stiffelman, M.F.T., Author Parenting Without Power Struggles and Parenting With Presence
