Parents as Educational Models and Definers.
Cohen, Jere
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n2 p339-51 May 1987
Combined data from Coleman's 1961 Adolescent Society survey and 15-year follow-up study of early status attainment of respondents. Found parents' effects on children's educational aspirations and attainments due to modeling and defining influences. Defining effects exceeded modeling effects in strength; proportion of parental influence due to modeling and defining varied with child's sex and social class. (Author/NB)
