Recent Research Project

  • Sibling influences on parent-adult child relations – This research (with Profs. Spitze and Ward) extends work on how relations between parents and adult children are imbedded in and influenced by relationships with other adult children. Innovative methods are applied to examining the processes by which families allocate intergenerational support between parents and multiple adult children, focusing on family structure and the network of family relations to look directly at how parent-child relations affect other parent-child relations.
