Chapter 4: Engaging the next generation of family members through work: adolescence and beyond
Restricted access

Many family business owners face the dilemma of whether they should hire their own children into the business or not. They wonder how working in their family business influences their children. Some may consider how it impacts the child-parent relationship. This chapter presents the details of some of the studies that have paid attention to these important yet understudied questions. Highlighting the findings of two longitudinal studies, the authors provide empirical support for the positive effect of working in one’s family business during adolescence and provide a roadmap for future research and practice.
