Genetic and Environmental Influences on Parent-Son Relationships: Evidence for Increasing Genetic Influence during Adolescence.
Elkins, Irene J.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v33 n2 p351-63 Mar 1997
Assessed aspects of the parent-child relationship for 11- and 17-year-old male twins. Found that similarity of twins' perceptions of parent-son conflict, regard, involvement, and support were greater for mono- than dizygotic twins. This difference between mono- and dizygotic twins' perceptions was greater for 17- than for 11-year-olds. Results suggest significant genetic influence and increased genetic influence with age. (BC)
