Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The present research aims to verify if there are differences between adolescents from families <intatte> and separated with respect to their perception of some aspects of the parent-child relationship (communication, satisfaction of the relationship, perception of the importance of the parents&#39; opinion on some lifestyle choices), also taking into account the possible incidence of structural variables such as age &#39;and the gender of the teenager. The sample consists of 300 adolescents between the ages of 11 and 17, 160 of whom (53.3%) from families <intatte> and 140 (46.7%) from separated or divorced families. The two groups are homogeneous by gender, age and socio-economic status. Adolescents were asked to compile the Parent-Adolescent Communication Scale (PACS) by Barnes and Olson, 1982 (adolescent version), some items aimed at measuring the level of satisfaction related to the relationship with the mother and father, a scale of measurement of paternal and maternal influence on some life choices, a structural data sheet. From the results it emerges that all the three dimensions of the adolescent-parent relationship considered here (communication, satisfaction, influence on choices), the independent variables examined (family typology, gender and age) seem to play substantially in the same way. In particular, it emerges that adolescent children of separated parents encounter greater difficulties than others in managing their relationship with father and mother, particularly with regard to communication and the satisfaction of their relationship with them. With regards to the incidence of age and gender factors, we observe, in general, that the youngest adolescents express a lower difficulty in relating to parents than others; no significant gender differences are observed
