Weisner, Thomas S.; Garnier, Helen
American Educational Research Journal, v29 n3 p605-32 Fall 1992
The effects on children's school achievement of countercultural nonconventional family organization and parental values were studied in a 12-year longitudinal study of 146 nonconventional families and 43 2-parent conventional families. Strong commitment to meaningful values about the family lifestyle can protect children from risks that can accompany countercultural families. (SLD)
