Abstract

The family is the basic institution of society. It is within the family that the individual develops his basic points of view and achieves a pattern of adjustment toward life. One of the most strategic factors in the family setting, insofar as personality development is concerned, is the parent-child relationship. Although it is evident that this relationship plays a great part in the socialization of the child, much remains to be understood concerning the underlying conditions within the family that affect his relationship.
