Grandmothers are coming into their own. There have never been so many of them.

As Naomi Stadlen explains, they have always mattered, especially in helping their families to survive. Drawing on grandmothers' own words, Why Grandmothers Matter describes the experience of having grandchildren across many cultures, and discusses the sometimes delicate relationships between grandmother, parent-child and grandchild. This warm and thoughtful book has much to teach us about family dynamics and the role grandmothers play in wider society, and will be valuable for parents as well as grandmothers when they enter into a new phase of family life.

Naomi Stadlen works as an existential psychotherapist in private practice, specialising in seeing mothers and parent-couples. She teaches and supervises at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling. She runs Mothers Talking, a weekly discussion group on Zoom. Naomi is married to Anthony Stadlen. They have three children and three grandchildren. In her spare time, Naomi enjoys Wu style Tai Chi, quick crosswords, Jewish studies, and classical music
