Abstract

Parental rejection is linked to deep and enduring adjustment problems during adolescence. This study aims to further clarify this relation by demonstrating what has long been posited by parental acceptance/rejection theory but never validated empirically—namely that adolescents’ unique or subjective experience of parental rejection independently informs their future adjustment. Among a longitudinal, multi-informant sample of 161 families (early adolescents were 47 % female and 40 % European American) this study utilized a multitrait–multimethod confirmatory factor analysis to isolate for each early adolescent–parent dyad, the adolescent’s distinct view of parental rejection (i.e., the adolescent unique perspective) from the portion of his or her view that overlaps with his or her parent’s view. The findings indicated that adolescents’ unique perspectives of maternal rejection were not differentiated from their unique perspectives of paternal rejection. Also, consistent with parental acceptance–rejection theory, early adolescents’ unique perspectives of parental rejection were associated with worse adjustment (internalizing and externalizing) 1 year later. This study further demonstrates the utility and validity of the multitrait–multimethod confirmatory factor analysis approach for identifying and examining adolescent unique perspectives. Both conceptually and analytically, this study also integrates research focused on unique perspectives with a distinct but related line of research focused on discrepancies in perspectives.

1
These covariances account for variance unique to the adolescent that is not dyad-specific but is specific to a given facet of rejection.
 
2
These covariances capture any shared variance across mother and father reports that is independent of shared variance across mother and father reports already accounted for via the covariance between adolescent–mother and adolescent–father dyad perspectives.
 
3
Although there is evidence to support the validity of the interactive multiple regression approach (Laird and De Los Reyes 2013), recent work (Laird and Des Los Reyes 2013; De Los Reyes et al. 2013) strongly questions the validity of the discrepancy score approach. Consequently, we caution researchers against using the discrepancy score approach to examine adolescent–parent discrepancies.
