First aired: May 14, 2018.

The late humorist Sam Levenson once said “The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have…. a common enemy.” In addition to being the unexpected and amazing joy of their later lives, for many grandparents grandchildren are the opportunity for a do-over, to be the parents they couldn’t be to their own children.

But grandparenting can also be like walking on eggshells: figuring out when to offer advice and when to withhold it, how to set boundaries, and how to deal with responsibilities one may not have contemplated.

In her latest book, “Unconditional Love: A Guide to Navigating the Joys and Challenges of Being a Grandparent Today,” author Jane Isay, a grandmother of four, draws on her own experiences and those of other grandparents to provide advice on how to navigate the uncertain waters of parenthood.
