Hilarious helpful hints for grandmas

Illustrated by: Christine Tripp
Ever since anyone can remember, grandmas have been stuck with baby-sitting while parents enjoy a night on the town...or two weeks in the Bahamas. Now there's help for beleaguered grandmas from Mary McBride, who instructs them on how to "scheme, lie, cheat, and threaten so you'll be thought of as a sweet, darling grandma."

McBride leaves grandmas in tears -- of laughter -- with outrageous helpful hints: A short course in baby care for grandmas who still remember when diapers were fastened by safety pins; Creative suggestions for showing baby photos to anyone in any situation; How to get out of baby-sitting...or, if stuck, how to housebreak the kids before they wreck the house; How to get kids to behave at a restaurant...at least until they've ordered their food; Reality therapy for grandmas who think their grandchildren are perfect; How to advise the daughter-in-law without being banned from her home; How to behave at confirmations, bar mitzvahs, graduations, and weddings so the grandchild won't be embarrassed.
