Concepts of Family among Children and Adolescents: Effect of Cognitive Level, Gender, and Family Structure.
Newman, Judith L.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v29 n6 p951-62 Nov 1993
A total of 120 children, adolescents, and adults completed questionnaires and interviews to determine effects of age, cognitive level, gender, and family structure on their definitions of family, divorce, and adoption. Both children and adolescents most frequently mentioned affective ties in their definitions of family. Females were more likely than males to consider specific family roles in their definitions.
