Abstract

The early 1980s have begun with a vigorous concern about American families; a concern which is in large measure linked to serious questioning of contemporary values and a renewed interest in the moral upbringing of children. Noting the magnitude of public anxiety about the family, Charlotte Saikowski (1980) indicates that 45 percent of Americans think family life has grown worse since the mid-1960s, and over one-third of the population believes the situation will continue to deteriorate. Changing moral standards, decline in moral behavior, and uncertainty in the moral realm are frequently cited as causes of the numerous problems confronting families, problems ranging from the increasing divorce rate to the high incidence of domestic violence.
