Strom, Robert D.; Strom, Paris S.; Beckert, Troy E.
Adolescence (San Diego): an international quarterly devoted to the physiological, psychological, psychiatric, sociological, and educational aspects of the second decade of human life, v43 n171 p525 Fall 2008
Black, Hispanic, and White mothers (N = 739) and adolescents (N = 806) completed a Parent Success Indicator to assess maternal behavior related to Communication, Use of Time, Teaching, Frustration, Satisfaction, and Information Needs. Comparisons between each ethnic group and a previously established national parenting standard revealed that both generations from each group judged the overall performance of mothers to be favorable. Teaching received the highest rating followed by Satisfaction. Mothers indicated that a need to have more Information about a particular adolescent was their greatest learning challenge, while adolescents reported that their mothers were prone to Frustration. While each group demonstrated favorable and unfavorable variations from a national standard, Hispanic generational differences indicated the least congruence by ethnicity. (Contains 4 tables.)
