Becoming the grandmother of twins changed Harriet Hodgson and altered her life course. According to Hodgson, we live in a fast-paced, complex time, a time when too many grandchildren are victims of bullying, Internet scams, and sexual abuse. Hodgson believes that grandmothers are needed today more than any other time in history.
“Grandmas can’t be passive,” she declares. “Every grandma has the power to protect and guide her grandchildren and needs to tap this power.”
This narrative weaves Hodgson’s personal story with research findings. It’s packed with ideas for helping grandchildren. Hodgson’s age, child development degree, life experience, teaching experience, witness to history, and extensive research converge to make this an inspiring read. Working individually and together, grandmas are changing the world.“The Grandma Force is about the power of love and the power of one,” Hodgson says. “One-by-one, grandmas are standing up for grandchildren and creating a hopeful future for them.”

I’m coming late to the blog tour, but no less enthusiastic about you, Harriet! I had the Grandma Force on my Kindle, but after reading this, decided I needed to be able to keep it where I could see it and take notes, so I just ordered the paperback copy. Pat, thanks for hosting Harriet. Both of you are amazing women! Be blessed. You’re already a blessing!
Thank you, Patty. I am sure Lady Harriet will be thrilled to hear that you also have a paperback copy. You are a blessing too.
Take care of yourself and have a lovely week.
Thank you so much for coming by and supporting Lady Harriet on her book tour.
All the best and have a lovely weekend.

Hi, Pat, and to all of you who have supported Harriet today!
Harriet, during the creation of this trailer, I was brought to the brink of tears so many times as I remembered both my grandmothers who were simply amazing! Thank you for the inspiration and enjoy your tour which has kicked off in grand style here at Pat’s place!
Happy Valentine’s Day, all!
I have looked at Lady Harriet trailer often and it always take me back to my grandmothers who were people I cared for very much. That trailer brings out Lady Harriet’s loving character.
Thank you for stopping by.
Thanks for hosting Harriet today, Pat. My first grandchild just turned two and it’s such a joy and privilege to watch him learn and make discoveries. Like Harriet, I pray to live up to the promise of helping to guide his growth. Enjoy your tour, Harriet!
Thank you, Linda, for visiting. Your first grandchild. Oh you’re going to have so much fun and joy as you watch him discover life. You’re going to be an awesome grandmother.
Thanks, Pat! It’s amazing. He calls me Go-ma because he can’t say Grandma. 🤣I think I like Go-Ma!
Enjoy your first grandchildren to the hilt!
What a wonderful start to Harriet’s tour! My mother has been an incredible grandma (abuela in Spanish). I am beyond grateful for her role in my son’s life. Thanks for hosting today, Pat! 🙂
Thank you, Yvette, for visiting. That is so wonderful to hear. Grandmother are so special and I know your son appreciates and loves his grandmother very much.
A big congratulations to Harriet! She is such a lovely sweet soul and an inspiration! Thank you for hosting, Pat!
Thank you, Jan, for dropping by. Yes, Lady Harriet is a beautiful person and she has so much wisdom that she is willing to share. She is truly an inspiration.
Thanks for visiting Jan.
I just read Harriet’s contributions to the Watch RWISA Write Anthology last night. I’m a grandmother as well. My six grandchildren live far away from me (three in Michigan, three in New Hampshire) and I rarely see them. I wish I had more opportunities to have an influence on them. I identify closely with Harriet’s experience with raising twins as well, since I had to take in my sister’s two children when they were 11 and 15 in 1997. One of my children was already in college at the time, while the second was about to leave for college. I had to go back to attending PTO meetings, helping with homework, etc. It was a rude awakening but something that had to be done. The “grandma gene” kicked in then, too. Harriet is such a role model for all of us. I appreciate her so much for so many things she does.
Thanks, Pat, for hosting her tour. We have so much to learn from her experiences, as well as yours!
Thank you, Wanda, for visiting. Yes, Lady Harriet is a role model for all of us. I know you miss your grandkids, and I am quite sure when you are around them, they take all of your time because they love you dearly. Grandmothers are special.
Thanks for your kind, thoughtful post Wanda Fischer.
Although Harriet admits to being in her eighth decade, her energy and output inspire us all. I have read and reviewed Grief Doodling and need this new book for two reasons: I’m a grandma too (Nana) and I know a friend who is coming out with a book on grand-parenting in May. Thanks, Pat, for the promo here!
Thank you for dropping by, Marian. Yes, it is quite unbelievable the energy that Lady Harriet has. She is an inspiration for us all. It is nice to hear you are a grandmother too. I believe Nana is the Italian word for grandmother. I am quite sure you’re going to enjoy your grandkid.
And thanks for reviewing Grief Doodling Marian Beaman!
