From Conflict to Companionship

A New Relationship With Parents

(p.47) 3 From Conflict to Companionship
Emerging Adulthood

Jeffrey Jensen Arnett

Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at how relationships with parents change in emerging adulthood. The discussion starts looking at the many facets of emerging adults' relationships with their parents, followed by the changes that take place when emerging adults move out of their parents' households, as well as the experiences of emerging adults who move back in again and those who remain at home. The shift that often takes place in emerging adulthood from a parent-child relationship to a new relationship as friends and near-equals is discussed, along with the enduring repercussions of parents' divorces and remarriages — how emerging adults recall these events and how they believe they have been shaped by them.

Keywords:   emerging adulthood, parents, parent-child relationships, conflict, companionship, divorces, remarriages, emerging adults
