Control versus Autonomy during Early Adolescence.
Eccles, Jacquelynne S.; And Others
Journal of Social Issues, v47 n4 p53-68 1991
Data from a longitudinal study of adolescent development of approximately 2,300 sixth and seventh graders (the Michigan Study of Adolescent Life Transitions) provide a basis for the hypothesis that optimal developmental outcomes should result from an environment that gradually reduces adult control as the child's desire for autonomy increases.
