Description
Grandparents have changed The stereotype of the fragile, white-haired retiree has been shattered. Today's grandparents are active and involved- in everything from careers to fitness to dating. They are thirty-something to one hundred plus- and every age in between. Grandparent's roles have also changed, as have many of their situations. While some may be grandparenting within a traditional family, others may be facing new challenges such as: acting as a stablizing force during times of family upheaval, providing day care for a grandchild, furnishing temporary living arrangements for an adult child and grandchild, filling the role of Mom and Dad for a grandchild, blending stepgrandchildren with biological grandchildren. Whatever the unique situation, parenting experts Jim Fay and Foster W Cline, M.D., show grandparents how to develop enjoyable, fulfilling relationships with both thier adult children- while helping grandchildren grow into responsible, caring young people.



About the Author
In his 20 years as a speaker and consultant, Jim Fay has become one of America's most sought-after presenters in the fields of parenting, positive discipline, and classroom management. He is a best-selling author, and has become the pied piper for parents and educators searching for practical behavior management techniques. Jim has 31 years of experience in a variety of educational settings including public, private, and parochial schools. He has served as a consultant to parents, mental health organizations, and the U.S. military. Through his experiences as an art and music teacher, classroom teacher, principal, and administrator in both inner city and suburban schools, he saw the need to structure the classroom, the school, and the home in a way that would build positive relationships with children. "Parents and teachers often tell me 'it shouldn't be a popularity contest.' But when I started out as a parent and a teacher with lots of lecturing, threats, rewards, and punishments... it just didn't work," Jim says. "It's all about teaching children responsibility and self-discipline, while at the same time giving the message that the adults in their lives care about them." Jim slowly developed this new philosophy, learning as he went, experimenting with different techniques until he found a consistent and practical way to implement these strategies in his work with children. His philosophy has grown into what is now known as Love and Logic(r). "The Love and Logic philosophy primarily teaches character," says Jim. "And this character is built out of a formula that involves three things: the child makes a mistake, the adult responds with empathy and compassion instead of anger, and the child learns from the consequences of his or her actions." Jim is the parent of three children. His son Charles, a former school psychologist, joined the Love and Logic Institute as a speaker and consultant, and was recently named president of the organization. Jim has authored hundreds of books, articles, audios and videos, and is the man that coined the term "Helicopter Parents." Books, videos, and audios by Jim Fay include: . Parenting with Love and Logic . Teaching with Love and Logic . Helicopters, Drill Sergeants, and Consultants . The Four Steps to Responsibility . Raising the Odds for Responsible Behavior . Secrets of Step-Parenting . Shaping Self-Concept For more information about Jim Fay go to www.loveandlogic.com, or call 800-338-4065
