Enfants du baby-boom et parents vieillissants : des valeurs et des attitudes contingentes au parcours de vie
Gérontologie et Société, 2008
URL, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
The evolution of values and attitudes concerning intergenerational relationships is an important preoccupation in ageing societies. At a time when children of the post-war baby boom are in the second part of their professional career or reaching retirement, their parents are facing old age. Social norms and family behaviour formed during childhood and adulthood have important consequences for intergenerational relationships later in life. These patterns are demonstrated using French data from the 2005 Generations and Gender Survey relating to the birth cohorts of 1941 to 1960. The values and attitudes of these cohorts relate to diverse norms and behaviours. At the same time, personal and family life course patterns, together with economic influences, are more influential than cohort membership in forming values and attitudes and the types of relationships between adult children and their elderly parents.
