Roberto, Karen A.; Stroes, Johanna
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v34 n3 p227-39 1992
Explored significance of grandparents to 142 college student grandchildren. Grandchildren reported infrequent current interactions with grandparents, although they did perceive their grandparents, especially grandmothers, as influential in their value development. Grandchildren reported stronger relationships with grandmothers than with grandfathers. Found differences in participation, value development, and relationships according to role in which grandchildren conceptualized grandparents. (Author/NB)
