Grandchildren are defined to be the children of one's son or daughter. It is a compound word made up of the individual words "grand" and "child."

A person's grandchildren are the offspring of her sons or daughters. Grandchildren is the plural noun of grandchild.

In a Longitudinal Study of Generations, researchers found that grandparents and grandchildren who had close relationships with each other later in life showed fewer symptoms of depression than those with more detached relationships, as reported by the New York Times. Those with close relationships were also less likely to report feeling lonely or sad, and the grandparents and grandchildren can be resources for each other.
