Being A Distance Grandparent
Helen Ellis is a New Zealand researcher, author, anthropologist, veteran of Distance Grandparenting and the Founder of DistanceFamilies.com. Three of her four children and four of her six grandchildren live 16 to 30 flight hours away in America and England.
In her research she asked the question: “How is distance grandparenting for you?” Her book, Being a Distance Grandparent – a Book for ALL Generations, combines that experience with her extensive global research.
This is the first of a three-book series about distance families – each publication focusing on a different generation (grandparents, sons and daughters and grandchildren).
Her goal is to support each generation to understand ‘how it is’ for the other and pass on some ‘how to do it’ tips.
