English term or phrase: grandchild
second generation daughter
Elio Marandola
French translation:petit-fils, petite-fille, petits-enfants
Explanation:
If the grandchild is a boy, we use "petit-fils". If its a girl, then we say "petite-fille".
"Petits-enfants" is used only in its plural form and it then means grandchildren rather than grandchild.

Hope that helps
