The title of this book--Grandparenting: Influences on the Dynamics of Family Relationships edited by Bert Hayslip, Jr and Christine A. Fruhauf—highlights the central theme of this text: That grandparents have historically played indescribably important roles in insuring and preserving family functioning and stability, and continue to do so. Over time, as our world has become more complex, families are often geographically distant and more technologically dependent. The complex and intricate roles of grandparents as influential players in families is more essential than ever before.
