What Parents Know, How They Know It, and Several Forms of Adolescent Adjustment: Further Support for a Reinterpretation of Monitoring.
Kerr, Margaret; Stattin, Hakan
Developmental Psychology, v36 n3 p366-80 May 2000
Tested the tracking/surveillance explanation of why parental knowledge is linked to adolescent adjustment. Found that across age and informant, high parental knowledge was linked to good adjustment in Swedish 14-year-olds, but children's spontaneous information disclosure explained more of these relations than parents' knowledge. Suggested that parents' tracking and surveillance efforts are not as effective as previously thought. (Author/KB)
