Relationships between Adult Children and Their Parents: Psychological Consequences for Both Generations.
Umberson, Debra
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n3 p664-74 Aug 1992
Examined how parent/adult child relationships affect adult children's and parents' (n=3,618) psychological distress levels. Found that quality of intergenerational relationships appears influenced by structural circumstances; that negative aspects of relationships are more strongly associated with psychological distress than are positive aspects; and that effects of relationships on distress sometimes depend on structural circumstances.
