Family Cultural Socialization Practices and Ethnic Identity in College-Going Emerging Adults
Juang, Linda; Syed, Moin
Journal of Adolescence, v33 n3 p347-354 Jun 2010
We examined how family cultural socialization related to the ethnic identity of Asian American, Latino, White, and Mixed-Ethnic emerging adults (N = 225). Greater family cultural socialization was related to greater ethnic identity exploration and commitment. Ethnic minority students reported higher levels of family cultural socialization and ethnic identity compared to White students. The family cultural socialization-ethnic identity link was more pronounced for females compared to males, and for White compared to ethnic minority students. The findings highlight the importance of the family for identity development beyond adolescence. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
