A Twin-Sibling Study of Observed Parent-Adolescent Interactions.
O'Connor, Thomas G.; And Others
Child Development, v66 n3 p812-29 Jun 1995
The mother, father, and adolescent siblings from 675 families were observed interacting in problem-solving sessions. Siblings were monozygotic twins, dyzygotic twins, or full siblings in nondivorced families and full, half, and unrelated siblings in stepfamilies. Results suggested a greater genetic component to adolescent behavior than to parent behavior. Both parent and adolescent behavior showed effects of nonshared environment. (BC)
