Abstract (Summary)

This quantitative study examined Asian adult-children of immigrant parents' perceptions of their parent-child relationship, bicultural values, and the impact of acculturation on parent and child. The sample consisted of 30 Asian American adults (15 males and 15 females). The perceptions of Asian adult-children were explored in this study with the purpose of providing greater insight of the diverse areas of need for this growing population.

Results indicated that the majority of participants perceived barriers to parental involvement in their education when their parents were not fluent in English. The participants reported having more Asian cultural ties and values when they spoke their parents' native language. However, when their parents understood the American culture, the participants reported communicating more with their fathers. Implications for social work practice and recommendations for future research are addressed.
