A Journey To the Heart of Adolescents' Values: The Family, Great Pillar of a System

Chantal Royer

Recent value studies indicate that the family is one of the most important values for young people worldwide. This article explores and describes the meaning of the “family” value to adolescents. Why is it so important to young people? The stepping-stone for this analysis is data taken from a wider study of the values of young Quebecers. The results document the image of the family entertained by young people, and describe their family projects and their relationships with their parents.
