SONG Lu1,LI Shu-zhuo2,LI Liang1(1 School of Management,Xi'an Jiaotong University,Xi'an 710049,China;2 Institute for Population and Development Studies,School of Public Policy and Administration,Xi'an Jiaotong University,Xi'an 710049,China)  
Using data from the baseline and follow-up surveys by the Institute for Population and Development Studies of Xi'an Jiaotong University,this paper used multiple regression in order to estimate the effects of care for grandchildren on psychological well-being of the grandparents.The results showed that care for grandchildren directly improved grandparents' psychological well-being,and among which the gender of grandparents or children played important roles.Grandparents providing grandchild care to sons had better psychological well-being,which suggested that traditional "son preference" norm had an effect on psychological well-being of the grandparents.Care for daughters' grandchildren improved the psychological well-being of grandfathers,but not of grandmothers.
