Children's Book Author Gramps Jeffrey Inspires Grandparents

According to an often-quoted sociology study, “Grandparents and Family Crisis,” by Cherin & Furstenberg, 30% of grandparents are classified as being “remote.” The remote definition of these almost one out of every three grandparents essentially means that they rarely see their grandchildren and most contact is made on birthdays and holidays. (Or as the New York Times wrote in their review of the book, “The New American Grandparent: A Place in the Family: A Life Apart,“ the non-fiction work Cherin & Furstenberg subsequently wrote to share their research with the public, grandchildren of remote grandparents view them as the people who “live far away and bring presents.”)

Gramps Jeffrey: Too Many Grandparents Just Don’t Care

Living this past year because of the pandemic caused by Covid19 in isolation except for being with family, gave me special time to watch and interact with the grandkids. What a trip! All 6 kids have completely different personalities. The one thing they have in common is the sense of curiosity and how excited they get when they do accomplish something new. Watching them grow year to year and how they interact with each other is the basis for this book.

I remember celebrating my father’s 60th. Birthday, and I did not say this out loud, but definitely thought “he is an old man”. But he lived close to another 3 decades and I am glad he did. His father (my grandfather) was not as lucky, and he died at the age of 49.Now that I am in my 60’s, we just don’t seem as old as our parents when they were our current age. Perhaps it is caused by modern science or perhaps we just lose our eyesight and think we look better than we really are…

For years, we Baby Boomers have viewed ourselves as the best generation our great country has ever seen. Prior to President Biden, who is a member of the Silent Generation (born 1925 to 1945), we Boomers (born 1946 to 1964) have actually run the country since the early 1990s:
