To explain attachment development in adolescence in different contexts we applied the family solidarity model (e.g., Bengtson, 2001) generally used to analyze intergenerational adult children-elderly parents relations. The model differentiates four family solidarity patterns which were assumed in our study to occur in adolescent –parent relations, though with a different distribution. We tested a susceptibility hypothesis assuming that effects of parenting will be stronger in family patterns with higher, compared with lower, affectual solidarity. A sample of Polish adolescents, their mothers ( N=570, both), and their fathers ( N=290) was surveyed as part of the Value-of-Children Study (Trommsdorff & Nauck, 2005). Four family patterns were identified: highly affectual amicable and harmonious; and less affectual and most frequently displayed detached and disharmonious patterns. The parenting susceptibility hypothesis was supported: For amicable and harmonious families, adolescents’ perception of maternal rejection was more strongly related with their attachment compared with the other family types. Partly in line with our hypothesis, effects of paternal rejection on adolescents ’ attachment were strongest in amicable families, however, not significant in harmonious families. The study demonstrates that the relation between parenting on adolescents ’ attachment representation is influenced by the pattern of family parents –child relations. [less ▲]

Recent sociological and psychological debates concern the nature of the relation between changing religious beliefs and changing significance of the family. The current study analyzes multilevel relations between religiosity (personal and culture-level) and several aspects of family orientation for n = 4902 adolescents from 18 nations/areas from diverse cultural contexts covering a number of religious denominations with data from the Value-of-Children-Study (Trommsdorff & Nauck, 2005). In addition, cultural values from the World Values Survey representing religious versus secular values as well as survival versus self-expression values are examined at the cultural level of analysis as a joint effect with nation-level economic development. Results showed that religiosity/religious values were positively related to all aspects of adolescents’ family orientation at the individual as well as the cultural level, while societal affluence was only related to a loss of importance of the traditional and hierarchical aspects of family orientation. Postmaterialist self-expression values were unrelated to adolescents’ family orientation. [less ▲]

Although parenting warmth is conceived as pan-cultural predictor of child attachment, some studies indicate that the extent of its effect differs across cultures and that in certain contexts attachment may be explained better by rejection than acceptance. Referring to an ecological framework, we asked to what extent culture moderates the relation between parenting (acceptance-rejection) and adolescents’ attachment. Our sample consisted of 4246 mothers and their adolescent children interviewed in 14 countries. Generic attachment was indicated by anxiety and avoidance. Results revealed that maternal parenting explained child attachment in general. However, effects on anxiety were moderated by culture. More precisely, in countries where effects of rejection were stronger, effects of acceptance were weaker. Results indicate that in some countries maternal rejection (compared to acceptance) is a stronger (or the only) predictor of adolescents’ anxiety. Results will be discussed in the framework of attachment and culture-informed model of intergenerational relations. [less ▲]

Whereas reasons for having children, i.e. positive VOC, have been a central focus within the framework of the Value-of-Children approach, reasons for not having children, namely negative VOC, have been given less attention so far. Perceived negative aspects of parenthood may, however, be of particular importance for the individual decision of having children or not, and may be related to the actual quality of intergenerational relationships. The aim of the present study was therefore to focus explicitly on negative VOC and to examine in how far negative aspects of having children are related to further variables characterizing intergenerational relationships in three different cohorts (mothers of adolescents, mothers of small children and adolescents) living in western and eastern Germany as well as in Poland. Participants took part in the cross-cultural and interdisciplinary Value-of-Children study. The study design allowed taking into account not only generational/cohort and country effects, but also effects of social change. A comparison of the reasons for not having children (negative VOC) between the different subsamples showed that whereas roughly the same negative aspects were most prominent in all subsamples (with problems related to job being rated highest by all participants), young mothers from West Germany and mothers from Poland as well as adolescents from all three subsamples were overall more bothered about having children compared to old and young mothers from East Germany and old mothers from West Germany. Higher negative VOC went along with mothers’ reported ideal number of children or with the actual number of children in the German mother subsamples. Negative aspects of having children had also an impact on adolescents’ ideas about having children: Whereas in Germany, adolescents’ intention of having children (or not) in the future was related to the level of negative VOC, in Poland, apart from that also the intended number of future children was related to negative VOC.
