Within Family Leisure Attitude Similarities and Differences.
Neulinger, John; And Others
This study explores leisure attitudes within the family, specifically addressing itself to three primary questions: (1) Will leisure attitudes of children be "at the same level" as those of their parents?; (2) Will the children's attitudes relate significantly to their parent's attitudes?; and (3) Will the answers to these questions be the same for different kinds of leisure attitudes? Subjects were students and their mothers and fathers, 59 sets at The City College of New York and 99 sets at Lehigh University. Questionnaire data were obtained, using Neulinger's "A Study of Leisure." Analyses indicated attitude-specific findings, a sex-related "generation gap" in some leisure attitudes, and relative independence of child-parent relationships. While the cross-sectional nature of the study did not allow a separation of "cohort-effects" from age effects, the data are supportive of a historical interpretation of the findings. Support for this explanation is provided by significant college-related attitude differences. (Author)
