Adolescent-Parent Attachment and Adolescents' Relations with Their Peers: A Closer Look.
Schneider, Barry H.; Younger, Alastair J.
Youth & Society, v28 n1 p95-108 Sep 1996
Tests the hypothesis that adolescents who reported secure attachments with their parents would display higher levels of interpersonal relational competence. Responses from 63 10th grade students reveal little correspondence between parent-child attachment and the positive aspects of adolescent social competence. Both positive and negative dimensions of parent-adolescent attachment were correlated with adolescent involvement in extracurricular peer activity. (GR)
