Conducted study to identify ethnic differences in grandparent performance and effectiveness. Compared perceptions of 204 white grandparents and 204 African-American grandparents and of 175 white and 295 African-American grandchildren. African-American grandparents perceived themselves more favorably than did white grandparents. Analyses of grandparent responses revealed significant main effects for grandparent age, grandchild age, time spent together, and geographical proximity. (Author/NB)
