The Meanings of Parent-Adolescent Relationship Quality Among Chinese American and Filipino American Adolescents
Claremont McKenna College, Psychology (CMC)
The growing presence of non-European cultures in America brings new challenges to as well as opportunities for parenting research. Whereas particular constructs of parent-child relationships were once considered universal, we now recognize distinct cultural variations. This is especially true in the case of Asian Americans, a population encompassing many diverse ethnicities.
Informed by a variety of qualitative and quantitative methodologies including detailed surveys of teenagers and their parents, Asian American Parenting and Parent-Adolescent Relationships focuses on Chinese and Filipino Americans—large populations with markedly different histories and cultural influences—giving readers a new lens into the nature and meaning of cultural differences in parenting.
