dc.description.abstractThe Asian extended family has been characterized by the principle of 'interdependence' between generations in praxis. In gerontological literature, it is known as 'generalized reciprocity' which extends between generations. To explore the concept of interdependence further, and to examine its translation into reality within multigenerational families, a qualitative research study involving three-generation families was conducted in Singapore. The results of 30 interviews are reported from a total of 10 families. The different aspects of interdependence and its impact on the emotional components of relationships between generations will be described, within the context of a fast modernizing city. The implications of findings for policies, services and intergenerational programs conclude the paper. © 2006 by The Haworth Press, Inc. All rights reserved.
