Grandma was Right cover
Grandma Was Right!

39 1/2 Slogans To Raise Children By

by Anne McKay Garris

Grandma Was Right! is a guide and reference book for today's busy parents who are doing the world's most difficult job, all too often without the assistance of that wonderful repository of wisdom and warmth from generations past: grandma.

Experienced parents know that slogans, repeated often, can help instill wholesome character traits in children, leading them toward developing into happy, successful people. That's where Grandma Was Right! comes in.

Each of the 39 1/2 chapters begins with a tried-and-true saying. Supportive stories and examples explain each of the sayings and the contexts in which they may be appropriate. When "Julie" is feeling sorry for herself or "Christopher" is demanding his own way, just look up the attitude problem in the Index of Challenges. Instant grandma! She will tell you not only what to do, but also how to do it in the most painless, loving and effective way.
