    DescriptionIncorporating advice from more than 350 families nationwide, this guide offers specific tips for bonding with grandchildren, from babies to teens. Along with a completely revised resource section, this fifth edition features expanded sections on Skyping, texting, and social networking--Facebook, Flickr, MySpace, Twitter, and YouTube. Among the guide's hints are more than 225 easy, low-cost, do-together, and long-distance activities such as ideas for successful visits, holidays, and family traditions. While primarily intended for use by grandparents, this sourcebook's strategies and suggestions can also help daycare providers, separated parents, extended family members, and teachers grow closer to the children in their lives.
