In this program, the author of many books and a long-running parenting column displays an uncanny understanding of how people function in extended families. The smoothly written narrative covers every possible role grandparents can have in these topsy-turvy times. The author's calm advice deals with realistic conflicts about how families allocate parenting responsibilities and triage child-raising challenges. The program also reminds us that when parents are doing their jobs, grandparents can be more free than parents to give unconditional love to children. The stories will test your patience if you're expecting compact directives, but over the six-plus hours the author's warmth and broad sensibilities provide a complete learning experience you won't soon forget.
