Culture of American Families on WNRN

On Sunday March 10 WNRN’s Wake-Up Call featured Institute Director of Survey Research Carl Desportes Bowman and Associate Fellow Megan Juelfs-Swanson discussing the Culture of American Families Project.

The project is a three-year study comprised of online surveys and in-person interviews, examining the treasured hopes, deepest fears, and most pressing challenges of today’s parents. The study aims to understand the climate in which children are being raised today and covers topics such as what it means to be a “good parent” or a “good child” in this era; what challenges exist in parenting; and how parenting is different now than in previous decades.

You can listen to the interview and download reports from the study.
