While studies have considered the importance of the grandparent and grandchild relationship from the perspective of the former, the present study explores the perspective of young adult grandchildren concerning this relationship. Four relationship variables are examined: the amount of contact; the assessed adequacy of contact; the importance of the relationship; and the role conception. The results of this study support the position that grandparents remain a significant factor in the lives of young adults.
