Previous literature has found that there is a connection between parental age at the time of birth and parent-child warmth, but few studies have focused on relationships during emerging adulthood. The purpose of this study is to examine if the age of a parent at the child’s birth was related to the parent-child warmth in emerging adulthood. Data were collected using an anonymous Qualtrics survey distributed via social media websites such as Instagram and Facebook. Eligible participants were adults between the ages of 18 and 30 (N= 177). Results indicated older parental age was associated with higher parent-child warmth in emerging adulthood such that individuals with older parents tended to report a warmer parent-child relationship. Future research needs to be done on this topic looking at moderators of the association between parental age and parent-child warmth.
