Gender, Parent and Peer Relationships, and Identification With Emerging Adulthood Among College Students
Journal of College Counseling
Relationships are important for college students in terms of their transition to adulthood. The aim of this study was to examine how parent and peer relationship closeness predicted identification with emerging adulthood among 774 undergraduates between the ages of 18 and 20 years. Parent and peer closeness predicted identification with various emerging adult dimensions, but results differed based on gender. Implications are provided for college counselors working with emerging adult college students.
