Abstract

Based on exchange theory it is predicted that the following would have more negative preceptions of their parents: Lower class, blacks, and those living with one parent, 1820 inner city youth answered items which comprised four family factors: Family Estrangement, Parental Permissiveness, Seeking Parental Advice, and Family Disagreement. Class had no effect on the youth's perceptions. Black youth were not more estranged than white youth, but youth living with one-parent were more estranged than youth living with two parents. It is pointed out that negative findings in the literature about black families may be attributable to not holding constant parental presence when comparing black and white families.
