How National Culture Affects Clothing Sharing Practices: French Versus Japanese Adolescent Daughters and Mothers

With an interpretive approach, this research studies clothes sharing in Japan and France. Two key areas in socialization research—adolescents’ influences on their mothers and mothers’ perceived control—help reveal the different forms and rules of the exchanges depending on cultures. The results revisit the question of possessiveness in cultures.
