New Thoughts on Old Families.
Troll, Lillian E.
Gerontologist, v28 n5 p586-91 Oct 1988
Contends that one's generational position and gender influence one's perspective on family structure and function. Suggests integration of child developmental research with gerontological research. Advocates recognition of reciprocities of interaction and influence among family members of all ages, correcting the child focus. Discusses kinkeeping, mother-daughter relations, and effect of prevailing cultural values on persistent family myths. (Author/NB)
