Filial Responsibility Among Mexican American College Students: A Pilot Investigation and Comparison
As the number of Mexican American elders increases, their care becomes pressing. We sampled filial responsibility expectations of Mexican American college students to expand culture specific knowledge and found physical proximity to elders an important expectation. However, although some respondents adhere closely to the traditional Mexican value of familism, others may be adopting more individualistic attitudes. Filial responsibility norms may be changing as the México and United States cultures interact at the Texas border. © 2005, Sage Publications. All rights reserved.
