Goldscheider, Frances K.; Thornton, Arland; Yang, Li-Shou
Journal of Marriage and Family, v63 n3 p727-40 Aug 2001
Examines expectations of very young adults (age 18) and their mothers about financial support that parents might provide under a variety of situations. Results indicate a lower proportion of mothers expect to provide support than their children expect, with particularly large gaps between mothers and sons. Findings suggest disagreement and confusion about family values. (BF)
