intention relationship. Presumably, authoritative parents would have spouses as well as a social
network with shared similarities (Berger, Weber, Munley, & Dixon, 1977; Byrne, 1971). Given,

Method
Participants and Procedures
Participants were 158 parents of adolescents in 7
th
grade (n = 51), 9
th
grade (n = 49), and
11
th
grade (n = 50) who attend a local public school in a Midwestern medium-sized city
(population 95,000). Most participants were mothers (72%). Ethnicity of the respondents
approximated the demographics of the region; 85% were European-American, 8% were African-
American, 4% were other, and 1% were Latin-American. The age of the participants ranged
from 22
(a reported stepfather) to 59 (M = 43, SD = 5.9). Regarding marital status, 76% were
presently married, 15% were divorced, 2% were separated, 1% were widowed, 1% were never
married, and 5% declined to answer. Of those who were not presently married, 40% indicated
they lived with a significant other, although a few respondents indicated this to be a relative.
Participants had from 1 to 7 children living in or away from the home, (M = 2.83, SD = 1.26).
