Abstract

Previous literature has found that mental health and parental authority tend to be correlated, but few have looked at parental authority and relationship satisfaction. The current study examined whether parental authority affects the parent-child relationship satisfaction of emerging adults (N=299) by implementing quantitative survey methods. The results indicated that higher parental authority was associated with lower parent-child relationship satisfaction. Findings suggest that there is a need for more research looking at parental authority and relationship satisfaction in emerging adults. Further research on this topic is warranted because the relationships that adults make in their lives have a lot to do with the relationships that they had with their parents growing up.
