Description the grandparenting experience is crucially affected by gender and experience with divorce in one or more generations. In my contribution I will focus on this issue at the case of the Czech Republic, country with high women´s labour force tradition which increase the importance of grandparents as informal carers of grandchildren and high intergenerational solidarity in socialistic period. It is based on secondary analysis of SHARE (Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe) 2010. The influence of divorce of grandparents and/or parents and gender of all three generations at frequency of caring for grandchildren and frequency of grandparent-parent contact are analysed using logistic regression.
