Grandparenting roles and functions. In Mehta, KK and Thang, LL (Eds.), Experiencing grandparenthood : an Asian perspectives, v. 47, p. 47-59. Dordrecht: Springer, 2012 How to Cite?
AbstractThe role of the grandparent is a culturally relevant phenomenon, and reviews have called for more studies amongst diverse populations (Thiele and Whelan 2006). Because Western literature is based on a cultural tradition that emphasises individual autonomy and choice, it is interesting to explore grandparenting roles in cultural traditions that accentuate family harmony and collective well-being. Asian societies share a cultural tradition focused on intergenerational exchange, family filial responsibility and the social expectation that grandparents will be involved raising the grandchildren (van Willigen and Lewis 2006).
