Intergenerational Relations and the Aged among Japanese Americans

Intergenerational Relations and the Aged among Japanese Americans Immigrant groups frequently experience a widening intergenerational gap as the younger generation improves in social status. That such ascendancy is accompanied by intergenerational conflict and strain is clearly borne out by the experience of many Japanese Americans. Using data gathered from over 100 pairs of mother and daughter respondents, this study explores the impact of social mobility of the younger generation of Japanese Americans upon relations with their first-generation parents. Also explored is the subsequent psychological well-being of the older Japanese immigrant, including a look at the structure of their social network. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research on Aging: An International Bimonthly Journal SAGE

Abstract

Immigrant groups frequently experience a widening intergenerational gap as the younger generation improves in social status. That such ascendancy is accompanied by intergenerational conflict and strain is clearly borne out by the experience of many Japanese Americans. Using data gathered from over 100 pairs of mother and daughter respondents, this study explores the impact of social mobility of the younger generation of Japanese Americans upon relations with their first-generation parents. Also explored is the subsequent psychological well-being of the older Japanese immigrant, including a look at the structure of their social network.
