Public and Private Dialogue About the American Family on Television.
Albada, Kelly Fudge
Journal of Communication, v50 n4 p79-110 Aut 2000
Finds that the private dialog between parents and children closely approximated the public dialog about TV family portrayals by focusing on TV family realism, structure, and relationship models. Shows that a social learning model was implicit in participants' arguments, and that most participants argued that family portrayals affect expectations for family life, valued features of family, and communication with family members.
