The aim of this study was to validate a French version of the Grandchildren’s Received Affection Scale (GRAS) and to assess the reliability of this scale. A sample of 285 French emerging adults completed the French translation of the GRAS and related measures. Results supported the four-factor model of the French GRAS grounded in Affection Exchange Theory by assessing it’s factorial and construct validity. Thus, this study provides intergenerational relationship researchers and clinicians with a valid and reliable tool to assess French-speaking grandchildren’s received grandparental affection.
