Book Reviews - Grandparenthood by Dr. Ruth Westheimer

UK Kirkus Review » Well known for her advice on sexual issues, Westheimer turns her attention to this comparatively neglected topic, neglected perhaps because it concerns older people and because it is assumed that grandparenting comes naturally. Not so, says Dr Ruth! She offers cosy, anecdotal advice across a range of topics, including the protocol of visiting, gift-giving, babysitting and interfaith families, with bibliographies for further reading. The statistics and helpline/contact addresses are American, but most of the issues addressed transcend geographical barriers and many grandparents will find Dr Westheimer's approach reassuring and thought-provoking. (Kirkus UK)
