"Not Under My Roof!" Young People's Experience of Home.
White, Naomi Rosh
Youth & Society, v34 n2 p214-31 Dec 2002
Examined young adults' experiences living at home for extended periods. Interview data indicated that the concept of home was a core organizing symbol in the discourse about coresidence with parents, linking social, emotional, and physical dimensions of the domestic environment with the young person's developing sense of self. The meaning of home related to perceived rights to make decisions about running the household, division of labor, and interpersonal relationships. (SM)
