King, Valarie; Elder, Glen H., Jr.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v59 n4 p848-59 Nov 1997
Examines how culture and interactions of family life influence grandparent-grandchild relationships. Results, based on 662 grandparents, show that grandparent involvement with grandchildren is significantly influenced by grandparents having known their own grandparents. Sharing a household with a grandparent made little difference in grandparents' contemporary involvement with grandchildren. (RJM)
