Lucia Whitehouse


Lucia Whitehouse, aka Grandmother Pukka is Dutch and has two grandchildren. Lucia is warm, funny and straight to the point when it comes to being a grandparent and her views on the role that parents of today have to take on.

Lucia has spearheaded our grandparent course and reflects on:

  • how grandparents-to-be might reflect back to how they were parented, or how they parented their children, upon finding out they're going to be a grandparent for the first time
  • worries around bonding with your grandchild - whether or not you live close by
  • taking on the role of part-time childminder (officially or not) and not burning yourself out!
  • outlines the major areas of responsibility and often stress, for new parents of today and how modern parenting styles compare to generations gone

In a nutshell, a comical, but really insightful guide to being a grandparent and Lucia is joined by other grandparents who been have interviewed over podcast talks and provide their 'how to' on different aspects of being a grandparent.

Lucia regularly features in the media as a grandparenting expert and is the InstaGran on Instagram, with over 17,000 followers on Instagram. She is also mother of Anna Whitehouse aka Mother Pukka.
