Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review


Grandparents are often the forgotten champions in their child’s and grandchild’s life. They are there for the celebrations, the presents and the demonstrations of affection, and they make the challenging times in life easier to live through. This text is a formal recognition of the various but significant roles grandparents play, their value in underpinning the family unit and the unique contributions they provide to the community.
Within the text, experiences are shared by grandparents to provide a glimpse into their diverse and real world, including generous, emotive quotes to draw the reader in. The text provides a wealth of literature to inform discussion and quantitative data to provide the reader with diverse perspectives on the grandparenting role. This makes the text relevant to researchers invested in a wide range of methodologies.
The authors state that the book is designed for those interested in gerontology and the life span, and it is a valuable resource for students and researchers who are studying or investigating the role of grandparents.
