Characteristics of Strong Families: Perceptions of Ethnic Parents.
Abbott, Douglas A.; Meredith, William H.
Home Economics Research Journal, v17 n2 p140-47 Dec 1988
Over 500 parents from four American ethnic groups were surveyed about characteristics that promote a strong, healthy family. There was consensus that the environment of a strong family was one of trust, support, and effective communication. The study supports the contention that traits of strong families extend beyond ethnic boundaries. (JOW)
