The relationships among young adults' perceptions of interparental, parent-child, and peer conflict were examined in the current study. Reports from one hundred and twenty-four young adults (17-20 years of age) revealed that gender moderated the association between perceptions of interparental conflict and family cohesion and young adults' reports of tactics used during conflicts with parents. Gender also moderated the association between tactics used by participants during conflicts with parents and those used during disagreements with peers. Findings are discussed in terms of implications for the associations among marital and family conflict and young adults' relationships with peers.
