Grandparenting in the Digital Age
Things aren't what they once were. As younger generations become increasingly immersed in the endless presence of tech, older generations struggle to find common ground to relate. The gap between grandparent and grandchild may feel wider than ever.
Grandparenting Screen Kids is a grandparent's guide to start bridging this gap. Relationship expert Gary Chapman along with coauthor Arlene Pellicane will help you understand this different (and often troubling) world of iPads, YouTube, and video games. They will offer activities to keep your grandkids occupied without screens and assist you in navigating differences with your adult children.
It's easy to feel overwhelmed, under-informed, and physically unable to meet the demands of active grandkids. That's why this companion guide to the book Screen Kids has been written to connect you to information and encouragement. Technology isn't going anywhere and your grandkids need you more than ever to guide them in ways that computers can't.
Arlene Pellicane and Gary Chapman have written a fabulous, practical book to help us grandparents help our kids and grands. Order this book, and get it for your friends, too. We need all the help we can get, right?! THANKS, Arlene & Dr. Chapman!
A quick power-packed, practical read. A must read for every grandparent who cares! Highly suggest you also read the companion book: Screen Kids too! These are written by two EXCELLENT leaders!
I highly recommend Arlene Pellicane and Gary Chapman’s new book “Grandparenting Screen Kids.” Finally, we have some very practical suggestions both for monitoring healthy usage as well as offering alternative activities.
