Active and Latent Functions of Grandparenting during the Divorce Process.
Johnson, Colleen Leahy
Gerontologist, v28 n2 p185-91 Apr 1988
Conducted 40-month longitudinal study following role of grandmothers in 43 families during divorce processes of their children. Found most women provided major assistance to children and grandchildren, with younger grandmothers more active. Analysis of their expectations indicated women became more ambivalent and dissatisfied if they were forced to perform parenting functions over time. (Author/ABL)
