Elaine Fantle Shimberg

  • Grandparents are the great equalizer in a child's life; they are the strong safety in the 'them versus us' game, which pairs grandparent and grandchild against the parent. Mindful of their own child-rearing errors (and acutely aware of those being made daily by their adult child), grandparents become a safe harbor when the sailing gets rough. It offer one that rarity in life — a second chance.

Elaine Fantle Shimberg, U.S. writer

(1937)
