    • 2009 May 19, Beth Teitell, “Horns Come Out When Grandparents Envy Each Other”, in Boston Globe[1], page B7:
      Most grandparents aren't engaged in a duel with their co-grandparents, but the desire to be the most beloved, most generous grandparent often simmers beneath the surface. [] “It can get to the point where they can't speak to the co-grandparents, or the parents can't have events where they're both there,” she said.
