Irreverent yet insightful, this lighthearted guide coaches grandfathers on how to celebrate the birth of their grandchildren and enthusiastically embrace all the joys and perils of grandparenting. Written from a grandfather's point of view, it dispenses cheerful advice with doses of humor on subjects such as how to feed and communicate with the children as well as when to spoil them. Included is experienced advice on babysitting, travel, time-sharing, not overstaying your welcome, gift-giving, and making the most of time spent with the young ones.
