Abstract

A forced-choice interview study of a random sample of parents in a Milwaukee suburb revealed that the majority of parents were well satisfied with many aspects of their family lives and environments. Few differences were found between mothers and fathers in terms of overall satisfactions and values and goals for sons and daughters. Although about half of the parents expressed worries about their children, few favored help from parent educators or other human service professionals, aside from teachers. Results are compared to other research including four recent national surveys.
