Youth and the Family. Seminar Series No. 7.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Center for Youth Development and Research.
This monograph presents opinions on youth and the family viewed from a variety of perspectives. Authors of the seven articles were participants in an Interdisciplinary Faculty-Student-Community Seminar which focused on different aspects of youth. Topics covered by the papers include goals and dimensions of the family; functions of the family; some major tasks of the family such as teaching sexuality and moral development; dealing with conflicts from the perspectives of a social agency, the family council, and community corrections; some examples of the changing awareness of today's schools; legislative response to the relationship of youth and the family; and closing comments. Some general concerns emerged from the presentations: (1) change is so rapid and unprecedented that no one knows what kind of world youth should be prepared for or the form the family will take in the future; (2) during adolescence, tremendous anxiety develops in both parents and children and they do not know how to handle it; (3) there is no right way to parent, but the results of parenting begin appearing in the adolescent; and (4) we must find out more since the family will continue to exist in some form for a long time. A suggested reading list concludes the monograph. (ND)
