This study examines co-shopping frequency (mothers shopping with children) from a consumer socialization perspective. It also compares consumer orientations and socialization behaviors of heavier, moderate and lighter co-shoppers. Results indicate that these groups differ in desires to develop children's consumer competence, consumer roles played by children, consumption motivations and values, and potential efforts to mediate marketing influence.
