On 11 January 2018 Reuters reported:
Children and teens who spend a lot of time with their grandparents may be less likely than peers who don't to have negative and stereotypical ideas about the elderly, a recent study suggests. Researchers in Belgium asked 1,151 youth ranging in age from 7 to 16 years about the time they spent with grandparents as well as their opinions about aging and the elderly. Growing evidence also suggests that contact between grandchildren and grandparents can be good for both, said Dominic Abrams, a psychology researcher at the University of Kent, in the UK. 'More time that is enjoyable and positive really makes the biggest difference. I think there are several ways that this works,' Abrams, who wasn't involved in the study, said by email.
