There is no other relationship like that between grandparents and their grandchildren. Without the anxiety and pressure of parenthood, but with the wisdom and experience that come with age, grandparents can be devoted role models and nurturers, enthusiastic playmates, and patient providers of knowledge and reassurance. In return, grandchildren allow us to relive the pleasures of childhood. They enable us to see our own children in a new light and our children, too, discover the parent we have been to them. Here, some of the best-known and most-loved Australians reveal their experience of grandparenthood. Candid, poignant and insightful, this book celebrates all grandparents and the bond they share with their grandchildren.
