Adolescence and Beyond

This chapter examines how parents' own romantic experiences as adolescents serve as models for the way they address their adolescent offspring's romance and sexuality and how this, in turn, shapes adolescent romantic behavior. In particular, emerging adolescent romantic interests and activities can reawaken parents' own relationship difficulties and doubts from the past and set the stage for their current parenting. These linkages are examined within a broader conceptual framework, influenced by attachment and psychoanalytic perspectives, that attempts to understand the dynamics of intergenerational transmission of parenting.

Keywords:   adolescence, parents, parenting, romantic experiences, romance, sexuality, romantic behavior, intergenerational transmission
