Kurzzeitreziprozität in späten Eltern-Kind-Beziehungen

Chapter

Zusammenfassung

In westlichen Gesellschaften unterstützen Eltern ihre Kinder bis ins hohe Alter mit instrumentellen und vor allem mit finanziellen Transfers. Umgekehrt helfen erwachsene Kinder ihren Eltern in erster Linie durch instrumentelle Leistungen. Diese Hilfe reicht von einfachen Tätigkeiten im Haushalt bis hin zu zeitintensiver Pflege im Alter (Rossi und Rossi 1990). Austauschmuster in späten Eltern- Kind-Beziehungen bestehen somit überwiegend aus „abwärts“ gerichteten finanziellen Transfers und instrumentellen Hilfen, die in der Generationenlinie „aufwärts“ verlaufen (Soldo und Hill 1993).
