Communication Media Use in the Grandparent-Grandchild Relationship.
Harwood, Jake
Journal of Communication, v50 n4 p56-78 Aut 2000
Finds that college-aged grandchildren used face-to-face and telephone communication more frequently with a grandparent than written media, but that all were used fairly frequently; communication using all media was more frequent when the grandparent or the grandchild initiated interaction as opposed to the parent; grandparent-initiated contact featured more use of written media; and communication frequency was positively associated with relational quality.
