Abstract: This research investigated the consequences of parent-child relationships during adolescence for young adults' well-being and substance use. Analysis of longitudinal data from the National Survey of Families and Households provided support for the hypothesis that parent-adolescent relationships have long-term consequences for young adult well-being and behavior. The findings are consistent with individuation theory and show that coercive parental control in adolescence is associated with lower well-being and more substance use in young adulthood. The long-term effects of parenting were mediated in part by the effects of parenting on adolescent adjustment, which influenced well-being in young adulthood.
