Grandparents are very versatile.

They are baby-sitters, weather forecasters, mother's helpers, sweet collectors, child-minders, knitwear suppliers, au-pairs, curators of G-Plan furniture and providers of day-care for the under twelves.

Retirement is an exhausting job.

Everyone knows that grandparents will do anything for their beloved grandchildren. Even if it means watching the same episode of that children’s programme with the irritating theme tune ten times over or attempting to explain Brexit to a five-year-old.

The modern world isn’t everything the grandparent remembers from their days as parent. There’s the fact that little Timmy knows more about how to programme and operate your television than you do, for a start.

But, after all, grandparents have already cracked parenting, how hard can it be?

"It’s enough to make Peter and Jane choke on their watercress sandwiches." – The Independent

Do you ever find yourself longing for a simpler time? That time before the horrors of speed-bumps, automated supermarket checkouts and infernal switchboard options; the days when telephones had wires and a reassuring rotating dial, a tweet meant birdsong and Brexit might possibly have meant a new kind of breakfast cereal?

Fear not, for you are not alone. What you need are the new manuals for our times, simple primers for the everyday predicaments we find ourselves in.

Dear friend, what you need is a Ladybird.

Part of the Ladybird Books for Grown Ups series.
