Grandparental investment facilitates harmonization of work and family in employed parents: A lifespan psychological perspective

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 33 (1):27-28 (2010)

The target article emphasizes the need to identify psychological mechanisms underlying grandparental investment, particularly in low-risk family contexts. We extend this approach by addressing the changing demands of balancing work and family in low-risk families. Taking a lifespan psychological perspective, we identify additional motivators and potential benefits of grandparental investment for grandparents themselves and for subsequent generations.
