Examined adolescents' and mothers' understanding of children's self-determination and nurturance rights at home. Found that eighth- and tenth-graders were more likely than their mothers to endorse self-determination requests and less likely to support nurturance requests in hypothetical vignettes. Mothers of tenth- graders were more likely to support self-determination requests and less likely to favor nurturance requests than mothers of younger students. (Author/KB)
