Publisher's Summary

Is your family geographically scattered? Has globalisation made your family a distance family? This audiobook tells the candid story of how distance parents and distance grandparents struggle - and succeed - to adapt to their new reality. This isn’t family life as they had imagined it. If you are a distance parent or distance grandparent, all those how, why, and what-if questions will find answers in these sections. You’ll realise, perhaps for the first time, that you’re not alone on your journey. Helen Ellis, researcher, writer, anthropologist and a veteran of distance grandparenting, examines everything from smart ways of tweaking your communication routines to tips for nourishing precious family relationships. These moving stories will soothe and inspire you, and more importantly, help you embrace your ever-changing distance family role.

Are you a distance family daughter, son, or grandchild living a globalised life? Do you worry about the folks back home? Is that you? Taking time to learn about distance family from your parent’s or grandparent’s perspective is a heartfelt act of love. With knowledge comes understanding...with understanding comes empathy...and that is a good thing for distance families. Being a Distance Grandparent - an audiobook for all generations will make a difference to your distance family. The first part of a three-book series.
