Leslie Lehr Spirson is conflicted on these sultry summer days. The pool in the backyard of her Woodland Hills home calls out to her, especially on days when her young daughters are off at camp. But these are also the only days when she can write uninterrupted. And, well into a new novel, Spirson is hungry to write. "I'm on page 136," she says. "It's going very well. At night my characters wake me up." Earlier this year, Spirson published her first novel, "66 Laps."

Contrary to popular belief, family TV is not dead ("What Is 'Family' TV?" by Brian Lowry, Aug. 7). It's on cable. My daughters (now 9 and 12) spend many evenings watching shows they've circled in the TV Times. Series on Disney ("Lizzy McGuire," "Even Stevens"), Nickelodeon ("100 Good Deeds," "Caitlin's Way"), Family Channel ("Brace Face," "So Little Time," "State of Grace"), and everything on Animal Planet. Our popcorn evenings--during a dearth of G and PG films--are spent watching Disney Channel original films like "Xenon," "Rip Girls" and "Life Size."

Remember the old days of spending the holidays with relatives, especially the ones you barely knew? Well, the holidays are here again. Now you're the parent, the aunt, the uncle or the grandparent and the thought of several days of family togetherness is making you feel more than a little anxious. Holidays being stressful enough, preparing your children and your hosts for your stay can make the difference between a good time and needing another vacation when the trip is done.

Long neglected in the voluminous library of self-help books, grandmothers now have a tome of their own. "Club Grandma: Etiquette, Privi leges and Official Duties for To day's Grandmother," (Longmeadow Press, 1994) by Leslie Lehr Spirson, teaches matriarchs that learning to love being drooled on can be the greatest love of all. It is a book for the grandmother of the '90s who is in her 50s--one who can fix the timer on the VCR but is pressing the snooze bar on her own biological clock.
