It gave me insight into my behavior and how it might be taken even though I was coming from a place of love. The fake reviews are so far off that it's hard to believe they actually read the same book!! I read the reviews and still purchased the book and I'm SO glad I did. It's full of down to earth advice--all grandparents should get a copy!!!!

I have read this book cover to cover. To address a few: It also says that if you have a problem with your daughter-in-law, to speak to BOTH your son and DIL in private to work something out or talk to your son in private instead of having a confrontation with your DIL. This book says many other things that I, as a strong realistic modern daughter-in-law, agree with completely. That is highly suspicious.
It's obviously either one very odd person, or a book club that opened it up to one page and misinterpreted it. There is ONE small section addressed to mother-in-laws about their daughter-in-laws that reviewers keep misquoting. All this is not a great mystery.
The Modern Grandparent's Handbook: The Ultimate Guide to the New Rules of Grandparenting
After all, their mother-in-law that's you These reviewers are adding their own emotional spin onto everything. I'm interpreting it at face value She was the first woman! She is used to taking care of him! She wiped his butt for goodness sake! So yes there's clashing about what we feel is best! Anyway, I'm going to be buying these books for my parents AND my in-laws and have confidence that they'll enjoy the read and will use common sense if some things seem to not work for our particular relationship. All in all I think it's a wonderful book with a refreshingly open and modern take.
Simple, common sense guidance. Can't say there were any "ah ha" moments for me but I tend to keep my mouth shut when it comes to criticizing anyone. One good take away was asking your child what they expect you to be as a grandparent. One person found this helpful. Very informative to help deal with and understand todays youth - their thoughts and ideas. Explained many things we had not considered in relating to our grandchild. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Witkin for making me feel joy instead of angst and age as I ease into the not so distant future when my step-son will have a child of his own!
Your insight is extraordinary, your advice, spot on, for a truly new generation of young, active grandparents. I'm sure your grandkids would agree. Highly recommend this book -- it's a great read! Definetly a must read for grandparents of kids of all ages.
Just expected more information about dealing with difficult parents in order to better assist grandchildren without interfering with the parent. I bought this as a gift for my Dad for Christmas. Book itself is good I guess content-wise, but I'm really disappointed with how I received it.
It looks like a used book instead of a new one because of blacks marks and messed up edges. It was thrown into a thin yellow padded envelope with no extra padding and the envelope looked beat up as hell when I got it. See all 30 reviews.
