The generation game is the cooperation game: The role of grandparents in the timing of reproduction

  • Rebecca Sear (a1) and Thomas E. Dickins (a2)
Abstract
Abstract

Coall & Hertwig (C&H) demonstrate the importance of grandparents to children, even in low fertility societies. We suggest policy-makers interested in reproductive timing in such contexts should be alerted to the practical applications of this cooperative breeding framework. The presence or absence of a supportive kin network could help explain why some women begin their reproductive careers “too early” or “too late.”
