Abstract

This study utilized the Family Environment Scale and the Experience Sampling Method to evaluate how overall family discord and discord in immediate family interactions were related to adolescents' age, in 101 single-mother families. Mothers' reports of overall family discord decreased across adolescence. In immediate interactions, adolescent boys reported feeling more anger towards their mothers with age, while girls reported feeling less anger with age.
