Suitor, J. Jill; Pillemer, Karl
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n4 p1037-47 Nov 1988
Investigated intergenerational conflict when parents shared home with adult child. Results from 372 elderly parents revealed surprisingly low levels of conflict with resident adult children. Conflict was lower in dyads with older resident child and in dyads where parent and child occupied similar marital status. Conflict was not related to parent health or dependency upon adult child.
