Grandad: All You Need to Know in One Concise Manual: How to plan your starring role * Practical projects * Games & activities for all ages * Great things to make and do * Advice & tips on behaviour (Concise Manuals) (Hardcover)
Grandparents are more involved and ‘hands on’ with their grandchildren than ever before. Nearly two-thirds provide some kind of childcare and a recent study from Oxford University found that regular contact with grandparents helps create happier children and well-adjusted adolescents. The Grandad Manual will follow on from the success of the Dad Manual. Along with practical projects and games, it will also contain care and welfare sections - covering those unfamiliar areas, such as monitoring internet and digital time and following the wishes of the parents, which may not mirror those of the grandparents. Whether you're going to be a grandparent for the first time or if you are about to look after your grandchildren for a week or two - the Grandad Manual will guide you through a variety of ways to keep them entertained, happy and safe.
