Adolescents' Influence and Co-Operation in Family Decision-Making.
Fallon, Barry J.; Bowles, Terry V. P.
Journal of Adolescence, v21 n5 p599-608 Oct 1998
Reports on data collected from 900 families concerning the process involved in deciding on a secondary school. A cluster analysis based on the adolescents' self- and parental influence resulted in three clusters: democratic, coalitions, and where one person is the most influential. Family context in terms of decision-making style is more important than age or sex in determining the influence. (Author/JDM)
