Prosocial Development

Mary B. Eberly Lewis

Oxford University Press

The multidimensionality of adolescent prosocial behavior toward parents is evident by considering the many different forms that prosocial behavior takes in an ongoing relationship, factors linked to its presence or absence, and the role that prosocial behavior might play in the dynamic between parents and adolescents. Studying adolescent prosocial behavior toward parents also requires a recognition that adolescents act within a relational context. The history and embedded patterns of interactions, overarching qualities and characteristics, and key transformational changes in conflict, autonomy and harmony over time are inextricably linked to the ways that adolescent behave prosocially toward parents. The purpose of the present chapter is to propose that adolescent prosocial behavior is both a contributor to and a manifestation of the vicissitudes within the parent and adolescent relationship.

Keywords:   prosocial behavior, multidimensionality, parent-adolescent relationships, relational context, conflict, autonomy, harmony, helping, chores, affection
