Samenvatting

Intergenerational continuity in family behaviors partly results from
socialization processes in the parental home. However, socialization is a
multidimensional process. This article tests hypotheses about the relative
importance of value transmission and modeling in explaining expectations
of adolescence concerning the timing of leaving home, and entry into
cohabitation, marriage, and parenthood. Structural equation modeling on
multiactor data from over 1,000 parent–adolescent child couples in the
Netherlands is used to test hypotheses. Results suggest that, in general, both
value transmission and modeling are important predictors of adolescents’
expectations concerning the timing of major family events. Moreover, no
differences between mothers and fathers and between boys and girls are
observed in the strength of the intergenerational relationships studied.
