Study finds that the transition of grandchildren to higher education improves the quality of the grandparent-grandchild relationship. For grandparent mentoring, there is evidence of a generational stake, with grandparents overestimating their mentoring role during this transition. Findings indicate that the intergenerational literature can be significantly advanced by taking a long-term perspective, incorporating multiple points of view, and examining contextual variation.
