Long, Margo Alexandre
This paper presents the results of a research study on the effects of social background factors on psychological orientations and child rearing patterns of interracially married mothers, both black and white. Data were gathered in interviews with 64 interracial couples. Background information reviewed on the interracially married mothers includes: educational and occupational level, length of marriage, age, and family size. Also described are mothers' perceptions of discrimination, the effects of discrimination on their marriages, childrens' ethnic group, and childrens' ethnic identity development. Finally, the effects of interracial marriage on child raising patterns are discussed. (APM)
