Age, Gender, and Parenting Style Variations in Mother-Adolescent Dialogues and Adolescent Reasoning about Political Issues.
Santolupo, Silvana; Pratt, Michael W.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v9 n2 p242-61 Apr 1994
This study investigated parental socialization of adolescent political reasoning from a Vygotskian cognitive socialization perspective. Discussions between mothers and their adolescent sons or daughters were examined using a transactive dialogue system and were related to the adolescent's age and gender and to family parenting style. As predicted, the discussions influenced the complexity of adolescents' subsequent reasoning about political issues. (TJQ)
