Leaving Home, Attending College, Partnership and Parenthood: the Role of Life Transition Events in Leisure Pattern Stability From Adolescence to Young Adulthood

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Raymore, L.A., B.L. Barber, and Jacquelynne S. Eccles. 2001. "Leaving Home, Attending College, Partnership and Parenthood: the Role of Life Transition Events in Leisure Pattern Stability From Adolescence to Young Adulthood." Journal of Youth and Adolescence, 30(2): 197-223.

Few researchers have examined the role that life transition events play in the maintenance of or change in leisure behaviors across the transition from adolescence to young adulthood, This study examines the role that leaving home, going to college, having a committed partner and becoming a parent played in intraindividual change and stability in leisure patterns. The data were from the Michigan Study. of Adolescent Life Transitions (MSALT), and were collected during the final year of high school and 3 years following high school. Results suggest thar transition events are particularly useful in predicting female leisure pattern stability or change; going to college and leaving home were generally: predictive of the maintenance of a stable leisure pattern, while becoming a partner and becoming a parent were predictive of change. For males, the most useful predictor of stability or change was leaving home. However the nature of the relation of the transition events to pattern stability or change depended on the type of initial leisure pattern.
