Adolescent Grandchildren's Relationships with Maternal and Paternal Grandmothers and Grandfathers.
Creasey, Gary L.; Koblewski, Patricia J.
Journal of Adolescence, v14 n4 p373-87 Dec 1991
College students (n=142) indicated their relationship perceptions of each available biological grandparent. Grandparents were not viewed as major targets of intimacy nor were they reported to provide instrumental aid. However, grandparents were still rated as important attachment figures to adolescents. In general, granddaughters reported better relationships than grandsons, and grandchildren reported more optimal relations with grandmothers. (Author/NB)
