Abstract

Using ideas associated with relational developmental systems metatheory, we discuss the links among the operation triad model of adolescent report–parent report convergence, divergence, or compensation and the research reported in this special issue. These contributions highlight the important implications for adolescent adjustment of youth and parent reports about adolescent development and family structure and function. Relational developmental systems metatheory raises both theoretical and methodological issues for research framed by the operation triad model. These issues emphasize the specificity (non-ergodicity) of mutually influential relationships between a youth and his/her parent, that is, the specificity of the adolescent–parent relationship. Relational developmental systems -based ideas may enable the operation triad model to be a means through which the study of adolescent self-reports and parent reports will have a more central place in the construction of key features of the dynamics of adolescent–parent relationships.

We believe that employing polynomial regression procedures provides a useful “remedy” to many of the shortcomings of the use of difference scores in prediction research. However, we should note that these shortcomings derive from the case of the components of difference scores being positively correlated, which is generally the situation of course. In such cases, the difference score is less reliable than either component score; hence lower predictive efficacy would be expected. However, if the components of differences scores are negatively correlated, then the difference score is more reliable than either component (Baltes et al. 1977; Cronbach and Ferby 1970).
