Autorentext

Neil Ferguson is a psychologist who was a researcher in the Law School at Cardiff University. He has most recently been attached to a research team that worked on a Nuffield Foundation funded project on grandparenting in a divorced family at Cardiff University.



Klappentext

This book is the first in-depth exploration of grandparents' relationships with their adult children and grandchildren in divorced families. It asks what part grandparents might play in public policy and whether measures should be taken to support their grandparenting role. Do grandparents have a special role in family life that ought to be recognized in law? The book examines grandparents' roles and functions and gives voice to their attitudes and opinions. Grandparenting is often represented sentimentally with too little account taken of the diversity of attitudes and behavior. The study asks challenging questions about grandparents' contributions to family life and comments on the legal and policy implications.
