Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article concerns how Arab adolescents living in Israel perceive their relationships with their parents by examining six domains of the adolescents' worldviews: caring and trust, family support, control and supervision, general attitudes towards parents, and parent-child communication, both instrumental and intimate. The sample consists of 662 twelfth-grade Arab adolescents from seven high schools. Findings show significant differences in various domains of Arab adolescents' worldviews according to gender, form of residence and level of religiosity.
