Contemporary Grandparenting

  • Arthur Kornhaber - Foundation for Grandparenting, Sante Fe, Indian Law Institute

December 1995 | 248 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
"Accessible and appealing, Contemporary Grandparenting begins in a way that immediately involves the reader in a personal way. The material included is highly engaging, written with many examples to support the theory and research. I have seen nothing that comes close to this important contribution. The research and real-life 'stories' make the work particularly valuable for a wide range of audiences. As an author, Arthur Kornhaber speaks to our hearts as well as our minds as he brings his intellectual points to life." --Carol Tice, Lifespan Resources, Inc., Ann Arbor, Michigan "I enthusiastically recommend this eminently readable book for anyone of any generation. Contemporary Grandparenting is especially appropriate for the cynics who, like some poets, in moments of despair, describe old age as 'no place for old people.' . . . Arthur Kornhaber conveys best, if not beautifully, grandparents' most wonderful side. . . . This book is a treasury of information that has been mined from the long tunnels the author has explored."
