Finally, once the concept of filial maturity has been clarified and at least some of its markers identified, its connections to related concepts can be evaluated: Does filial anxiety ( Cicirelli, 1988) precede maturity, as a spur to development, or can it curb progress? What is the relationship between filial maturity and affection? And is there a late life generalattribute of "personal maturity" or is maturity a congeries of role-specific maturities, each developing at its own tempo?
