Abstract [en]

Whether  the  relationship  between  young  adults  and  their  parents  affects  the  career  of adolescents is a research area that has not yet received great attention in the western world, especially not in Swedish context. The purpose of this study was therefore to investigate and illustrate, based on previous research, how young adults' relationships with their parents affect the young adults' circumstances and choices before and during their working life in Sweden and the United States. Through the use of sociological perspectives, we compared the results with each  other  to  identify  how  countries  differ.  This  was  done  through  a  systematic  literature review. Data was processed and analyzed based on differences in the social security systems of the countries, combined with the theoretical concepts of social reproduction and capital. The results  showed  that  the  social  security  system  contributed  to  better  conditions  for  Swedish young adults in terms of working life, while the relationship with the parents had a significant influence on the choices before and during young adults’ working life in Sweden as well as in the United States. The social reproduction turned out to be more directly expressed in the United States,  due  to  a  greater  pronounced  dependence  on  the  parents'  capital.  However,  this dependency occurs amongst young adults in both countries, but differs in character.
