With two sixteen-year-old granddaughters, Grandpa has writing Grandpa, Help – Answers to Questions a Young Lady Would Never Ask Her Parents. They ask questions and Grandpa answers. Grandpa is Herb Nordmeyer and he writes in the introduction:
My name is Herb, and over the years I have had over 20 young ladies ask to be my granddaughters. I found by treating young ladies as equals and as if they were important, and they really are, a strong bond is forged. Regularly, these young ladies consult me about situations they would never discuss with their parents.
The first book is available through Amazon and their Kindle Direct system for $2.99. Current plans are for eleven e-books in the series. Each will be about 70 pages. Since we are receiving requests for print books, we will be published print books as well, but that will not happen this week.
Rather than tell what we are doing, Here is Chapter 3’s question.
At what point do I laugh at the little stupid comments my father makes to me, or should I take them seriously? Like the other day when we were discussing my flying to Texas, he said, “I don’t know if we will get her a one-way or a round-trip ticket.” It drives me crazy and frustrates me.
I know he loves me as much as I love him, but after so many little snide remarks, I can never tell if he’s serious or not. He told me the other day, “Every joke has a little serious background to it.”
Also, if I joke around with him, he just looks at me disappointedly. The “D” word! It’s worse than any other word he could use towards me!
Gahhh.. At school, I feel like I am a positive influence among my peers. I help anyone who is having a bad day, or just needs a friend.. But at home I always feel like a disappointment. And sending you this is bringing tears to my eyes. I strive to do the best I can, but when it comes to my parents, I get frustrated and give up. Do I confront them? Do I try harder at home? Every time I turn around, I’ve done something wrong. What do I do, Grandpa?
A frustrated and confused granddaughter,
One of Grandpa’s recommendations is that Paisly get a khaki-colored bikini. You now know that this book will be a fun read. You will have to read the book to find out why Grandpa is recommending a khaki-colored bikini and to read the serious parts of Grandpa’s answer.
Our goal is to publish a book every year. If you are a young lady, and you would like to submit a question, please go to the Contact link and send us an email.
