Adolescent Power in Stepfather Families: A Test of Normative-Resource Theory.
Giles-Sims, Jean; Crosbie-Burnett, Margaret
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v51 n4 p1065-78 Nov 1989
Developed and tested normative-resource model of parent-adolescent power dynamics in stepfamilies using White, middle-class, suburban family sample (N=87). Identified patterns of power relationships for both major and everyday decisions and normative or resource variables associated with either greater parental or greater adolescent power. Results mostly support normative-resource model. (Author/CM)
