Grandparents play an important role in the development of prosocial behaviors for their grandchildren. Most research to date has focused on parental influences in the development of prosocial behavior, yet a growing body of literature suggests grandparent involvement adds to parental influences. Intergenerational solidarity, or various ways that family members stay connected across generations, likely plays an important role in the prosocial development of adolescents towards their family, friends, and strangers. Findings from the data presented here analyses supported both direct and indirect influences of grandparent involvement with initial levels of three types of prosocial behavior (toward family, friends, and strangers), and to the development of prosocial behavior towards strangers. Studies to date lay a strong foundation for further study of grandparent involvement as it relates to various aspects of prosocial behavior.
