Butcher, P. R.
Most researchers who have studied the relationship between the
adolescent, his parents and his peers have cast parents and peers as
mutually exclusive forces - to follow one is automatically to reject the
other. These researchers have turned up inconsistent findings, some
finding the adolescent's conformity to his peers so great that they
write of a separate youth culture, while others have found that the
adolescent is still very much under the thumb of his parents.
