Abstract

Research shows that children are influenced by both parents but has ignored the study of complementary roles of parents in young adult development. We measured female undergraduates life-satisfaction, self-esteem, and autonomy, and their perceptions of their parents roles. Results showed that mothers and fathers have unique roles in adolescent development.
