Changing Boundaries of Parental Authority During Adolescence: New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, Number 108 (0787981923) cover image
This volume describes research focusing on changes in different dimensions of parenting and conceptions of parental authority during adolescence. The seven chapters illuminate the dimensions of parenting that change (or remain stable) over the course of adolescence. The chapters also ighlight the importance of considering variations in parenting accoding to the different domains of adolescents' lives, their relationships to the development of responsibility automony, and how these are influenced by socioeconomic status, culture, and ethnicity.

Thus, the chapters in this volume provide new directions for conceptualizing variations in parenting over the second decade of life and their implicaions for adolescent adjustment and well-being. The authors point to the need for developmentally sensitive models of parenting that consider changes within domains over time, their influence on adolescent development and functioning, and potential asynchronies between parents and adolescents.

This is the 108th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development.
