On the March 10 Wake-Up Call, host Rick Moore speaks with Dr. Carl Bowman, Faculty member and Director of Survey Research at U.Va.’s Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture and Megan Juelfs-Swanson, doctoral candidate in Sociology as they discuss “The Culture of American Families Project.

The project is a multi-year study comprised of on-line surveys and face to face interviews, examining the treasured hopes, deepest fears, and most pressing challenges of today’s parents. The goal is to understand the climate in which children are being raised today. Some topics covered: What does it mean to be a “good parent” or a “good child” in this era. What challenges exist in parenting and how is parenting different now than in previous decades.

*Due to technical difficulties only the first forty minutes of the program were recorded.
