The purpose of this longitudinal study was to evaluate the difference
between mother-daughter dyad's "ideal" and the "real" perceptions of
family functioning over time. This study was guided by a synthesis of
systems theory and symbolic interactionism. The research questions were:
(1) What are the three dimensions of cohesion & adaptability between
mother-daughter dyads and (2) How does the dimensions of cohesion &
adaptability change over time. The instrument consisted of the Family
Adaptability Cohesion Evaluations Scale (FACES III) (Olson, D., Portner,
J. & Lavee, Y. 1985). The convenience sample consisted of 44 mothers and
daughters (14-17 years) that resided in North East Ohio. The sample
consisted of participants in a communication intervention group (32) and a
non-intervention group (12). Repeated measures ANOVAs were calculated for
each of the 19 items concerned with family functioning. The perception of
the "ideal" family was much more positive than the perception of the
"real" family on the following perceptions and the ANOVAs were
significant: "It is hard to identify the leaders(s) in our family" (Wilks' Lambda F=119.724; df=1,40; p=.000); "It is hard to tell who does which
household chores" (Wilks' Lambda F=75.170; df=1, 40; p=.000); "Parents and
children discuss punishment together" (Wilks' Lambda F=37.005, df 1, 42;
p=.000) and; "When our family gets together for activities, everybody is
present" (Wilks' Lambda F=27.014; df=1, 42; p=.000). Nurses can help
families to clearly identify roles; lines of authority; include
adolescents in identifying ways of punishment when there are unacceptable
behaviors; identify family responsibilities; and include family members in
group activities. There needs to be more congruency between the real and
ideal dimensions of cohesion and adaptability within families to reduce
high risk behaviors such as adolescent pregnancy.
