A COMMUNITY WIDE PROGRAM OF FAMILY LIFE EDUCATION FOR PARENTS OF ADOLESCENTS.
GAMBLE, BETTY ROBERTS
A STUDY WAS MADE IN THE KINGS MOUNTAIN AREA OF NORTH CAROLINA TO DETERMINE THE NEEDS FOR FAMILY LIFE EDUCATION FOR PARENTS OF ADOLESCENTS, TO PROMOTE A SUITABLE PROGRAM, TO EVALUATE POSSIBLE OUTCOMES, AND TO DEVELOP IMPLICATIONS FOR FURTHER FAMILY LIFE EDUCATION. ENROLLED IN THE FOUR WEEK PROGRAM, WHICH MET ONCE A WEEK IN THE LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL, WERE 228 PARENTS AND TEENAGERS. EACH MEETING FEATURED AN ADDRESS ON AN ASPECT OF FAMILY LIFE FOLLOWED BY GROUP DISCUSSION. A QUESTIONNAIRE ON ATTITUDES TOWARD FAMILY AND PERSONAL LIVING WAS GIVEN TO 876 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. A FAMILY LIFE ATTITUDE SCALE WAS ADAPTED AND A NEW INSTRUMENT DEVISED TO TEST A SAMPLE GROUP OF 45 PARENTS ON KNOWLEDGE GAINS AND ATTITUDE CHANGES. COMMUNITY LEADERS IN THE PROFESSIONS SERVED AS ADVISERS AND INSTRUCTORS, AND A COMMITTEE OF PARENTS AND YOUTH PUBLICIZED THE PROGRAM. FINDINGS MAINLY SUGGEST THAT THE MEETINGS INCREASED PARENTAL KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT NOTICEABLY ALTERING ATTITUDES. ON THIS BASIS, NEW HIGH SCHOOL AND ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN PLANNED OR BEGUN AND RESEARCH NEEDS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED. (INCLUDED ARE A RESEARCH REVIEW, 30 REFERENCES, NINE TABLES, AND APPENDIXES.) THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM WINTHROP COLLEGE, ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA. 93 PAGES. (LY)
