AbstractResearch and theory on adolescent development suggest that the kinds of relationships adolescents have at home will matter to the social experiences they have in high school. This chapter explores these potential connections with network and survey data from high schools in a nationally-representative sample of adolescents. Overall, adolescents who had negative relationships with their parents were less likely to feel socially integrated with peers at school, even though they spent more time with peers. This general association does not vary by whether adolescents’ network positions indicated that they were popular but was more pronounced among adolescents with high sociability ratings (i.e., adolescents who nominated multiple peers as their friends). In general, results indicate that relationships with parents were not consistently implicated in peer dynamics at school, but, when relationships in the home and school were connected, they often pointed to social risks for adolescents with problems at home.
