Chase, Nancy D.; Wells, Marolyn C.; Deming, Mary P.
American Journal of Family Therapy, v26 n2 p105-14 Apr-Jun 1998
Examines young adults (N=360) in terms of their perceptions of having assumed a parentified role in their family of origin as a function of academic status and classification as children of alcoholics or nonalcoholics. Low academic status participants reported having greater caretaking responsibilities and worries in their families. Children of alcoholics scored higher on the parentification measure. (Author/MKA)
