Teen and Parent Perceptions of a Secondary School Family Course
Stonely, Heather M.; Klein, Shirley R.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v96 n1 p56-61 2004
Adolescent and parent focus groups were conducted to do a needs assessment and discover possible topics for a secondary school family class. Results included identifying teen and parent family-related needs and societal concerns; discovering where teens currently learn about family life; and receiving teen and parent feedback about a proposed family science course curriculum, course placement, and teaching ideas. Potential barriers to family education in the high school are discussed and recommendations for the creation of a family course are suggested. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
