Objectives. Parents are the most important and closest source of support for children until adulthood and even thereafter. There comes a time for the elderly when their adult children are the nearest source of support. These parent–child relationships are a natural part of the life cycle. The objective of this study was to determine Romanian intergenerational family support and the impact of sociodemographic variables on this support. Of this study are. Of this study are.
Material and methods. Between 2011–2012, data were obtained from 1215 urban and rural respondents aged 18–74 years relatively homogenously distributed in the variables of environment, sex, educational level, and age group. An omnibus questionnaire of 96 items was used, with a focus on topics related to family functioning: domestic economics, education, cohesion, solidarity and sexual reproduction. From these three items were focused on in the present study. A questionnaire was used. A questionnaire was used. A questionnaire was used.
Results. One hundred individual face-to-face interviews were conducted in the manner of recounting the life problem. From these interviews, the three sequences that addressed time were used. The main beneficiaries of support from respondents were, in descending order, parents, grandparents, siblings and grandchildren. Respondents with low and medium income provided less support to their parents (p < 0.05), grandparents (p < 0.005) and siblings and grandchildren (p < 0.001). Urban respondents provided less help to their parents (p < 0.005), grandparents (p < 0.001) and siblings (p < 0.05). Grandparents helped their grandchildren more often than their grandchildren helped them. Men are more permissive than women regarding x (p < 0.001). Men are more permissive than women regarding x (p < 0.001). Men are more permissive than women regarding x (p < 0.001). Grandparents helped their grandchildren more often than their grandchildren helped them. Urban respondents provided less help to their parents (p < 0.005), grandparents (p < 0.001) and siblings (p < 0.05). Men are more permissive than women regarding x (p < 0.001). Grandparents helped their grandchildren more often than their grandchildren helped them. Urban respondents provided less help to their parents (p < 0.005), grandparents (p < 0.001) and siblings (p < 0.05).
Conclusions. This study shows that there is no question of a lower intergenerational solidarity, but that these intergenerational participation issues are generated by the variables of family, income, and geographic proximity, among others. The main problem of intergenerational support is elderly with low income. Lives of children, adults and elderly could be improved by intergenerational collaboration for the benefit of all. Intergenerational cohesion is essential for a healthy society, especially during these uncertain times and economic challenges.
Keywords: elderly; family life cycles; grandparents; solidarity; generations.
