  Year 2003 Publication Journal of Family Psychology Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 17 Issue 4 Pages 460-471  
  Keywords Mental Health Issues; Young Adults; intergenerational relationships; maternal interaction; paternal interaction; whanau; parent-child relationship; Child development  
  Abstract To evaluate effects of life-course events and experiences of young adults, as well as personality and mental-health history on intergenerational relationships in young adulthood, the authors examined dyadic relationship data drawn from a sample of more than 900 New Zealand 26-year-olds and their mothers and fathers. Results indicated that intergenerational relations were more positive when young adults were childless, not unemployed, married, and living away from home, but these factors did not interact with family relationship history in predicting relationship outcomes. Intergenerational relationships were less positive when children scored low on positive emotionality and constraint and high on negative emotionality and mental disorders, though these attributes did not account for the effect of life-course factors. Results are discussed in terms of the openness of the parent-child relationship in adulthood to further development.
