When Marianne Waggoner Day retired from the corporate world, she decided to focus more on herself, a common choice for women who have worked for years trying to have it all, family and career. Her calendar would include social activities, traveling, and a little consulting, and she was quite confident that her last chapter was well-defined and sensibly planned out.
Then her plans changed. She found something more compelling and much more rewarding: her grandkids.
But she wasn't content with playing simple games with them, watching them play in the park for hours, or sitting with them as they colored at her kitchen table. Instead, she mined what she learned in the corporate world for their benefit. The result was Camp Grandma.
“Your children need help in raising your grandchildren—because they are, as all parents are, flawed parents. That’s where you, the grandparent, come in. The power of grandparents to positively influence grandchildren cannot be overstated. Camp Grandma is an excellent and needed guide to becoming that grandparent. You—and your grandchildren—will be grateful you read it.” — Dennis Prager, nationally syndicated radio talk show host and columnist, New York Times bestselling author, and founder of Prager University
