The transition from adolescence to adulthood is a dynamic period marked by important changes in social roles of dependency (e.g., parental dependence) to roles of adult responsibilities. Adolescents have a growing need for autonomy, in which they seek more room from parents to exercise their own values, pursue their own goals, and engage in activities aligned with their personal interests. During the Growing Up and Growing Out? pop-up meeting in Utrecht (Netherlands), experts and professionals in the fields of parenting, pedagogy, and developmental psychology will seek to unravel the complexities of how autonomy and relatedness are negotiated within the family. During the meeting, Stijn Van Petegem will contribute to the meeting through his presentation that focuses on the question how to conceptualize autonomy, how to support autonomy as parents, and the way in which culture may affect these processes.
