Knipscheer, Kees; Bevers, Anton
Canadian Journal on Aging, v4 n3 p145-59 Sep 1985
Interviews with 74 older parents and with one each of their middle-aged children were conducted. Data were analyzed in terms of agreements and disagreements between parent and child and of perceived agreements and disagreements. Findings are discussed in terms of the developmental stake theory, a metaorientation, and asymmetry in the parent-child relationship. (Author/CT)
