Parents and adolescents: Intergenerational and group processes of influence
Prati F., Rubini M.
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.
