Parent-child Interactions.
Erlich, A. C., Ed.
This survey investigates 6 major questions: (1) do adolescents and their parents perceive youth as overindulged; (2) are parent-child communication channels open; (3) has understanding between parents and their children broken down; (4) do children identify with their parents; (5) has discipline been permissive; and (6) do adolescents reject the Establishment? Results are based on a national sample of 2,000 10th through 12th graders, randomly selected to match 1960 census distributions for sex, grade in school, residence and geographic region. Some data on parents was also obtained. The findings include: (1) as a gripe about youth, overindulgence ranks very low; (2) the degree of influence in family decisions correlates positively with parent-to-child and child-to-parent visibility, (3) half the parents were reported as "moderately strict," only 7% as "not at all strict;" (4) evidence indicates that children do identify with their parents when it comes to ranking gripes about youth today; and (5) 6-12% of the sample are skeptical about joining the Establishment.
