Abstract

MORAES, Raquel et al. Parental socialization and values: a study with teenagers. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2007, vol.20, n.1, pp. 167-177. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722007000100021.

This study investigates the relations between the perception of parental practices of socialization and the teenager's values. Two thousand and four (2.004) teenagers of both sexes, from public and private schools aged between 10 and 18 were contacted. Two questionnaires were used: the Teenage Parental Socialization Scale and the Questionnaire of Psychosocial Values. The results reveal that the teenagers' perceptions of parental socialization are organized in three dimensions: Acceptance, Control and Carelessness. They also show that the values are organized in four systems: Materialist, Post-materialist, Hedonic and Religious. Positive and negative relations were found among parental socialization practices and the teenager's values, which allow us to suppose that socialization in a family context reflects in the process of constructing the values of teenagers.

Keywords : Parental practices of socialization; values; teenagers.
