Grandparenting is not what it used to be. For the younger generation, an apple or blackberry has a whole new meaning and they will never know what it means to 'wait for the TV to warm up'.

As the proud, keen and enthusiastic grandmother to nine wonderful grandchildren, Gloria Hunniford knows a thing or two about keeping up with them. For nearly two decades they have brought her unimaginable joy and, frankly, kept her on her toes.

In Glorious Grandparenting she shares her ideas for what to do when the grandchildren come to stay, how to keep pace with them as they grow older, as well as many of her own treasured memories: playing 'animal, vegetable, mineral' on long car journeys to Cornwall, eating picnic lunches in a tent pitched in the garden and practising dance moves to be performed at family parties.

For many grandparents these days, life isn't always easy. In this book, Gloria speaks to those who feel 'taken for granted' as a childminder, have conflicting views on childcare, or, sadly have become separated from their grandchildren. She looks at the controversial lack of legal rights for grandparents and offers advice and guidance on handling these emotive issues.

Having grandchildren and spending time with them is one of life's great joys. Glorious Grandparenting is a wonderful celebration of what it is to be a grandparent today.
