The Granny-Nanny: A Guide For Parents and Grandparents Who Share Child Care

The Granny-Nanny: A Guide For Parents and Grandparents Who Share Child Care

No. 8810


by Lee Edwards Benning
Are you a Granny-Nanny? Are you a grandparent who provides child care for your own children's children?

In this wonderful, yet serious, comprehensive guide, author Lee Edwards Benning tackles a situation that many families face; shared childcare when money is tight, both parents work, a single, working mom (or dad) is responsible for daily child care, or local resources are simply inadequate or unavailable.

The Granny-Nanny is a hands-on guide for the single parent/working couple as well as the grandparent(s) who must work together to provide the most loving, best care possible for a child or the children they love.

In the past decade, the number of grandparents providing child care has risen dramatically, nearly doubling between 1998 and 2003. In the coming year, at least 79 percent of grandparents will experience the joys and tribulations of daily child care.

Author Lee Edwards Benning, a real-life, full-time granny-nanny, has written the definitive handbook for grandparents who care for their grandchildren of any age while their parents work. The Granny-Nanny can save you, or someone you know and love, heartaches, arguments, even lives.

This book includes important issues such as:

  • Whose home will be used?
  • How to childproof your home and other safety precautions.
  • Traveling with children.
  • What to do in emergencies.
  • The "special" child requiring special forms of care.
  • Disciplinary matters.
  • Financial arrangements.
  • Possible legal issues.
  • When there is a generation gap in parenting methods.
  • What to do when communication between parents and Granny-Nanny becomes an issue.
  • An extensive appendix featuring ideas for indoor and outdoor activities.
  • Children's reading lists.
  • Developmental markers, and resources.
  • (196 pp.)
