An Analysis of Changes in Grandparent-Grandchild Visitation Following an Adult Child's Remarriage

  • James W. Gladstone (a1)


Des données ont été recueillies auprès de 47 grands-parents dont les enfants se sont remariés. Les rapports avec leurs petits enfants avant le divorce, entre les deux mariages et après le remariage ont été évalués à l'aide d'interviews et de questionnaires. La théorie des échanges sociaux a permis de comprendre les données. Les changements dans les visites entre grands-parents et petits enfants ont été conceptualisées comme des coûts assumés par les grands-parents dans leurs échanges avec les membres de la famille. L'analyse qualitative des données montre que le rôle de médiation de la génération des enfants des grands-parents, l'âge des petits enfants, la mobilité géographique et la possibilité pour les grands-parents de contribuer à la vie familiale sont associés aux coûts.
