A New Way of Grandparenting Has Grandparents Stepping Up in a Way Previously Unknown.

Intensive Grandparenting investigates the &;who, what, when, where, and why" of the most thorough and involved grandparents. These grandparents don&;t just show up at birthday parties and holidays. Many of them provide regular child care and help with housekeeping. They chauffeur grandchildren to after school events, ballgames, and piano lessons. Whether these grandparents are still working or retired, they find a way to be involved in their grandchildren&;s lives, many on a daily basis.

But what motivates them? How do they respond to their peers who scratch their heads and call them &;crazy&;? Through interviews and research, Teresa Kindred looks into the lives of grandparents who should be wearing capes and tights as they soar alongside their grandchildren at warp speed with a smile on their face. They will inspire and amaze you with their tirelessness and devotion to the children they call &;grand." 

In Intensive Grandparenting, understand these grandparents' motivations and the world in which we live that makes this "intensive" relationship not only possible, but necessary, as well as learn how you, yourself, can become a grandparent who continues to have a large impact on, and place in, your grandchildren's lives.
