Becoming the grandmother of twins changed Harriet Hodgson and altered her life course. According to Hodgson, we live in a fast-paced, complex time, a time when too many grandchildren are victims of bullying, internet scams, and sexual abuse. Hodgson believes that grandmothers are needed today more than any other time in history. "Grandmas can't be passive," she declares. "Every grandma has the power to protect and guide her grandchildren and needs to tap this power." This narrative weaves Hodgson's personal story with research findings and is packed with ideas for helping grandchildren. "The Grandma Force is about the power of love and the power of one," Hodgson says. "One-by-one, grandmas are standing up for grandchildren and creating a hopeful future for them."
