Anderson, Stephen A.
Family Relations, v37 n2 p160-65 Apr 1988
Contrasted parents whose adolescent had left home for college, with those whose child commuted to college from home. Found parent role stress for both groups significantly related to the quality of parent-adolescent communication (for mothers and fathers), and the degree of emotional connectedness (for fathers) in the family prior to the transition. Demonstrated reframing significantly reduced parental stress. (Author/KS)
