American Families in the 1980s: Individualism Run Amok?
Aldous, Joan
Journal of Family Issues, v8 n4 p394-421 Dec 1987
Acknowledges that there are good outcomes from the present emphasis on individualism in families, yet argues that individualism is hard on children and on the ties that keep adults together. Asserts that public efforts to see that children are not left on their own at young ages are often thwarted by arguments that such efforts weaken family independence. (NB)
