The Intergenerational-Stake Phenomenon Over 20 Years

The Intergenerational-Stake Phenomenon Over 20 Years CHAPTER 3 The Intergenerational-S take Phenomenon Over 20 Years he intergenerational-stake phenomenon refers to the generational bias in parents' and adult children's perceptions of their joint rela- T tionship, which is, parents consistently perceive their relationship more favorably than do children (8engtson & Kuypers 1971).

Abstract

CHAPTER 3 The Intergenerational-S take Phenomenon Over 20 Years he intergenerational-stake phenomenon refers to the generational bias in parents' and adult children's perceptions of their joint rela- T tionship, which is, parents consistently perceive their relationship more favorably than do children (8engtson & Kuypers 1971). The ori@ theoretical explanation of this phenomenon- the developmental-stake hypothesis-has its basis in theories of developmental aging. Although evidence of the phenomenon has been well documented, support Ras yet to be found for the theoretical justification. Nonetheless, the developmen- talstake hypothesis continues to be used in the literature as an exphna- tory framework for a variety of empirical findings on parents and adult children (e.g., Fiese, 1993; Martell, 1990; Martini, Grusec, & Bernardini, 2001; Smetana, Crean, & Daddis, 2002; Smetana, Daddis, & Chuang, 2003). The first purpose of this chapter is to examine whether or how the inter- generational-stake phenomenon in a ffectual and consensual solidarity changes over 20 years for adult child-parent dyads. The second purpose of this chapter is to investigate factors that may be associated with this sta- bility or change. Factors associated with change could provide clues about the dynamics underlying the intergenerational-stake phenomenon. We present several alternative theoretical perspectives
