Powell, Douglas R.; Eisenstadt, Jeanne Watson
Family Relations, v37 n2 p166-70 Apr 1988
Compared conversations of 101 two-hour meetings of long-term mothers' discussion groups, in informal and formal settings, regarding topics discussed and frequency of nonroutine conversation. Found discussion of parent and child topics decreased throughout the year in both settings, while conversations related to income, family, and self increased. Emphasizes the educational potential of informal peer-directed conversations. (Author/KS)
