Adult Grandchildren and Their Grandparents: The Enduring Bond.
Hodgson, Lynne Gershenson
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v34 n3 p209-25 1992
Surveyed 208 adult grandchildren concerning relationship with their closest grandparent. Used levels of contact and perceptions of closeness to evaluate strength of bonds. Interaction levels were high for most respondents and relationships appeared meaningful. Comparison of ranked means suggests several factors related to strength of grandchild-grandparent bond: age, lineage, geographical proximity, child-parent relationship and parent-grandparent relationship.
