Attitudes toward Family Obligations among American Adolescents with Asian, Latin American, and European Backgrounds.
Fuligni, Andrew J.; Tseng, Vivian; Lam, May
Child Development, v70 n4 p1030-44 Jul-Aug 1999
Examined attitudes toward family obligations in American tenth and twelfth graders from Filipino, Chinese, Mexican, Central and South American, and European backgrounds. Found that even within a society emphasizing adolescent autonomy and independence, youths from families with collectivistic traditions retain their parents' familial values and that these values do not have a negative impact upon the adolescents' development.
