Ethnic Identity Beliefs of Young Adults and Their Parents in Families of Mexican Descent.
Okagaki, Lynn; Moore, Denise K.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v22 n2 p139-62 May 2000
Surveys of 135 young adults of Mexican descent and their parents found that parents' and children's descriptions of themselves in terms of cultural identity were similar. Differences were a function of the accuracy of young adults' perceptions of their parents' beliefs and their desire to be like their mother. (Contains 24 references.) (Author/SV)
