This review addresses familiar relations during adolescence on the basis of the concept of social influence. First, we examine studies which emphasize the role of one-way influence both from parents to children and from children to parents. Then we consider studies on two-ways influence considering both explicit and implicit processes of transmission of knowledge between generations. Finally we analyse studies on the family as a social group characterized by a constant and reciprocal influence between generations.
