Social Networks of Family Members: Distinctive Roles of Mothers and Fathers.
Oliveri, Mary Ellen; Reiss, David
Sex Roles, v17 n11-12 p719-36 Dec 1987
Data collected from 82 family triads demonstrate that adolescents are more consonant with mothers than fathers, particularly in the area of kinship relations. Fathers' distinctive association with adolescents is in the area of friendship relations and concerns affective aspects of relationships. These patterns are not dependent on gender of adolescent.
