Early Adulthood in a Family Context, based on the 18th annual National Symposium on Family Issues, emphasizes the importance of both the family of origin and new and highly variable types of family formation experiences that occur in early adulthood. This volume showcases new theoretical, methodological, and measurement insights in hopes of advancing understanding of the influence of the family of origin on young adults' lives. Both family resources and constraints with respect to economic, social, and human capital are considered.

From the Back Cover:

Graduation, full-time employment, independent living, marriage, parenthood―for decades this has been the idealized trajectory to adulthood. More recently, however, scholars, practitioners, and young adults themselves are recognizing the disconnect between long-held cultural scripts and current social and economic realities, as more young adults are following a wide range of pathways to adulthood.  

Early Adulthood in a Family Context provides insight on a contemporary cross-section of families that are diverse in terms of class, ethnicity, immigrant status, and economic circumstances. Focusing on family characteristics and dynamics that promote successful transitions to early adulthood, the book presents new theories, methodologies, and findings about the familial experiences and behaviors of young adults with their parents, partners, and offspring. Contributors also warn against oversimplified conclusions by emphasizing the variety of pathways to adulthood and recommending public policy supports for young adults. Included in the coverage: 

  • Parental support and young adults’ well-being.
  • Young adults in the digital world.
  • Child well-being and the long reach of the family.
  • Developmental shifts in romantic/sexual relationships from adolescence to young adulthood.
  • Becoming a parent: social contexts of fertility during young adulthood.
  • Young adult fertility in the context of economic disadvantage.

Early Adulthood in a Family Context brings current issues into clear perspective and deserves a wide audience among researchers, faculty, and students of human development and family studies, family sociology, and demography as well as policy makers and practitioners.

Review:

From the reviews:

“The book is based on papers presented at the 18th Annual Symposium on Family Issues in October 2011. ... each part of the book is a coherent piece and with each chapter the reader gets a wider or more detailed picture of the discussed topic. ... book offers valuable insight into how adolescents become adults and into how family is crucial in this process. ... may inform and enlighten our thinking not only about youth transition to adulthood, but also about fertility and family dynamics.” (Monika Mynarska, European Journal of Population, Vol. 28, 2012)
