A Study of Factors Affecting Cuban Parent-Child Interaction.
Hogges, Ralph; Hogges, Lilia
This paper investigates the value system of Cuban students living in the United States, how those systems interface with the school and the home, and how they influence their personalities, behaviors, and family relationships. Eighth-grade students attending a predominantly Spanish private bilingual school were administered a questionnaire, and participated in a group interaction process. The questionnaire covered the areas of cultural values in school and home. Comments from the group interaction process are also listed. The study concludes that students: (1) like the atmosphere of the bicultural school; (2) accept their parents' Latin-American values; (3) feel free to incorporate American cultural elements into their lifestyles; (4) have a high concept of the Cuban lifestyle; and (5) are optimistic about their expectations and futures. The study recommends: (1) a re-testing of the same students in 1979; (2) an expansion of the same study to include older students; (3) a study of Latin-American students attending American schools; and (4) the appropriation of federal funds to establish counseling/research centers to study adjustment problems in Cuban youths.
