This study explores the various factors that cause closeness and conflicts between Hispanic mothers and grandmothers co-parenting in three generational families. Such factors included acculturation, demographics, parental problems, and involvement by the mother, as the key factors in determining closeness and conflict between mother and grandmother. This study confirmed that as the grandmother becomes more acculturated there is more conflict between grandmother and mother. It also confirmed that demographic variables such as per capita income, age of grandmother, age of mother, and age of grandchild are not significant and not related to conflict. It further confirmed that the higher the parent problems the higher the conflict between both mother and grandmother. Finally, in regards to the mother's involvement, this study confirmed that there was a closer relationship between the grandmother and mother if the mother spent more time caring for the child on the weekend.
