Proximity as a Mediating Influence on the Perceived Aging Parent-Adult Child Relationship.
Mercier, Joyce McDonough; And Others
Gerontologist, v29 n6 p785-91 Dec 1989
Examined proximity and relationship between aging parents (N=224) and adult children. Found no difference in quality of relationships between parents whose children lived near and those whose children lived over 60 miles away. Significant predictors for proximate group were personal sense of control and education; for distant group, child gender and number of living children. (Author/NB)
