Abstract

In this paper I draw on Hagan et al. (1987) and Singer (2001) and consider how adolescent reactions to parental controls vary in traditional, patriarchal and modern, egalitarian households. To understand how adolescents think about their parents' control strategies, I conducted in-depth interviews with 25 adolescents from patriarchal and non-patriarchal households. One of the main contributions of this study was the discovery of the strategies adolescents use in response to parental controls: 1) conformity, 2) waiting it out, 3) hiding out, 4) covering tracks, and 5) open rebellion. Strategies among adolescents in patriarchal households were likely to be reactions to the fear of external or direct controls (e.g., colluding with peers to "cover tracks"), while strategies among adolescents in non-patriarchal households were more likely to be reactions to internalized parental values (e.g., unquestioning obedience to parental rules). Regardless of gender, adolescents from non-patriarchal households were more likely than those from patriarchal households to report using strategies of "open rebellion." Findings suggest that future research should move beyond simply examining parental control strategies; it should also examine adolescent reaction strategies for dealing with the controls they perceive.
