Sharing the Past and Future among Adolescents and Their Parents
Shirai, Toshiaki; Higata, Atsuko
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v40 n3 p253-261 May 2016
This study explored how sharing past and future life events among late adolescents and their parents influenced the quality of their own time perspectives. Triads (N =104) of female students and their parents described three important life events from their past and future. The results showed that adolescents who shared past and future life events predicted a positive impact on their time perspective, whereas parents displayed a more complex dynamism that included the impact of sharing the past on the future and vice versa. It is suggested that the impact of sharing past and future life events varies according to the age group.
