Hurme, Helena
International Journal of Aging & Human Development, v44 n3 p221-53 1997
Reports on a study in which a content analysis of essays written by 731 Finnish and Polish adolescents was used to examine relations among grandchildren, parents, and grandparents. Results indicate significant cross-cultural differences in descriptions: Poles describe grandparents in more abstract terms, whereas Finns make less mention of activities and appearance. (RJM)
