This document deals with the need for and suggested content of a Parents and Children course for inclusion in Wisconsin's home economics program. Presented in chapter 1 is a working paper on the nature and significance of continuing concerns of families. It examines the current and desired state of affairs regarding parents and children and gaps between the two. In chapter 2 the rationale for a Parents and Children course is developed in the context of the basic assumptions underlying Wisconsin's education, home economics/home economics education, and family and consumer education programs. Chapter 3 includes several cases illustrating the essential concepts of the proposed course, desired student outcomes, and assumptions about the course's content. Chapter 4 contains the rough draft of a five-module course devoted to the concerns of parents/adults and children within the family and personal settings, environment and community settings, and societal context and public policy arena and actions that individuals and families can take to improve their well-being in these settings/contexts. Appended is a summary of relevant statistical data from recent studies. Contains 59 references. (MN)
