Podcast: How to be the best grandparent

With people living healthier, longer lives, grandparents are increasingly involved in raising their grandchildren. Podcast host John Deeks speaks with Dr Jane Williams about the latest research on how children’s brains work and how grandparents can initiate activities that involve movement, activity, imagination and music. Dr Williams offers practical advice on what is important in building a loving, supportive relationship with the grandchildren. If you’re lucky enough to be involved in your grandkids’ lives (now or in the future), this is a must-listen with practical tips to make your time together valuable and rewarding.

Grandparenting Grandchildren, by Dr Jane Williams and Dr Tessa Griggs, will be available in early August from all good bookstores.
