"The lesson in “intentional grand-parenting” made me realize how helpful it is to give more thought to my goals as a grandma and create an action plan. The talking points for the partnership with grandbaby’s parents are the most powerful part.

Hi, I’m DeeDee.

When I found out I was going to be a grandmother, I searched the internet for advice on establishing a strong relationship with my grandchildren and their parents. Though I found a few articles here and there, most of the grandparenting websites I found seemed to be focused on how much fun it is to be a grandparent. I wanted more than fun, and it turns out I wasn’t alone.

I created More Than Grand with a focus on how important it is to be a grandparent, and how to do that well.

As a communications consultant, I knew where to start. I began talking to parents to find out what it is they need from grandparents, and where they wish grandparents would do better.

Thanks to those conversations, we were able to create a resource that truly addresses what new families want new grandparents to know. New Grandparent Essentials will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to be a valuable, dearly loved partner in your grandchildren’s lives.
