What Is in a Family? Adolescent Perceptions.
Anyan, Stacey E.; Pryor, Jan
Children & Society, v16 n5 p306-17 Nov 2002
Presented vignettes describing groupings of people to 232 New Zealand adolescents to examine their perceptions of families. Found that 80 percent or more endorsed married and cohabiting families, lone-parent households, and extended family members as families. Found few differences according to adolescents' own family structure. Chinese adolescents were less likely than others to endorse groupings as families. Love and affection were primary criteria for being a family. (Author/KB)
