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).
