Parental View of the Collegiate Generation Gap. Research Bulletin, University of Minnesota, V14 N9 January 28, 1974.
Biggs, Donald A.
This study examines characteristics of parents in most, moderate and least agreement with their collegiate children. The sample consisted of the parents of 354 undergraduate students enrolled at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities). Eighty-one percent of the parents completed questions about their backgrounds, methods of influencing their collegiate children, their levels of concern about different behaviors of their children, and their beliefs about U of M students. Results suggest that parents with smaller families and younger parents perceive themselves as more in agreement with their children. Parental methods of influencing their children were related to their frequency of agreement. However, parents in most, moderate and least agreement with their children did not differ significantly in their level of concern about most children's behaviors, nor did they differ in their beliefs about U of M students.
