    Please see the attached file for full question.

    Two independent (unrelated) sample groups of parents and grandparents were recruited. A total of 105 young adult parents, between the ages of 21 and 40 years, participated in this study. A total of 105 middle-aged and older grandparents, ranging in age from 36 to 84 years (M = 64 years) also participated in this study. This group is defined as grandparents of any age, sex or race who are:
    a. not serving as a primary caregiver to their grandchildren
    b. residing in a separate household from their grandchildren
    c. living with a one-hour drive, or 50 miles, from their grandchildren.

    The grandparent participants were more likely than young adult parents to rank the roles of religious guide and family historian as important. Also, grandparents were more likely than parents to rank the role of playmate as important to initiate with young grandchildren.
