Expressions of Generativity through Family Leisure: Experiences of Grandparents and Adult Grandchildren
Hebblethwaite, Shannon; Norris, Joan
Family Relations, v60 n1 p121-133 Feb 2011
The purpose of this study was to understand the expression of generativity among grandparents and their adult grandchildren through their experiences of family leisure. Fourteen dyads of grandparents and adult grandchildren were interviewed about their experience of family leisure. The findings illustrate the important role that family leisure played in the experience and expression of generativity, evidenced by the reciprocal use of leisure in teaching, mentoring, and creating a family legacy among grandparents and adult grandchildren.
