Youth snap parents into political-rearing mode, says CU-Boulder-led study

Oct. 30, 2014

Parents are more reactive than proactive when providing political influence and opportunities for their children, according to a study led by the University of Colorado Boulder. The study, published in the journal Social Science Quarterly, found that political engagement independently pursued by youth spurs parents to realize that childrearing extends to the civic realm. It also is the first study to show intentional political parenting as an outcome of family interaction rather than a stimulus.
