The Family

by John P. Hill - 1980

In what follows it should be noted that our knowing little about the intersection of parental and early adolescent development is part of a larger context of ignorance. Research on any aspect of early adolescence is rare. Research on the family and the early adolescent is even more so. And, with the possible exception of social stratification studies, the research that does exist is not sensitive to variations in family composition or context. The word "family" as used in this chapter necessarily reflects the existing literature and can be taken to refer to biologically related, intact mother-father-child triads living in the same household.
