The Dark Side of Interpersonal Communication

children. Perhaps, parents may even conceive of invasions as necessary in being "good" parents. From this view, the kinds of reactions discussed in this chapter may perplex these parents. This type of speculation is beyond the current chapter, but to form a more complete picture of family privacy binds, it seems important to compare the parents' perspective with the college-age children's point of view.

Regardless of the parents' orientation to privacy violations of their children, the point remains that from these data, college-age children believe that invasions comprise the parent-child relationship in meaningful ways. As Youniss and Smollar ( 1985) point out, "individuality, which is probably a primary issue between parents and adolescents, develops gradually through a series of accommodations. . . . The parents retain authority by giving more freedom to adolescents by recognizing their personal needs and capabilities" (pp. 158, 162).
