Transition to Grandmotherhood.
Fischer, Lucy Rose
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v16 n1 p67-78 1983
Examined grandparenthood as a role relationship. Grandmothers, in describing transition to grandparenthood, tended to emphasize emotional/symbolic investment in grandchildren rather than instrumental/interactional dimensions of relationships. The data suggest that grandparental role conceptions are modified by family network variable: Ambiguity in the grandmother role is magnified by geographical distance. (Author)
