Interest in the field of home economics and in the family relationships aspects of home economics teaching led to the question as to whether the boy-girl, sibling, and parents' relationships could be improved with the placement of certain emphasis in the family life curriculum. In order to consider the problem and to try to answer the question, the family data, occupations of parents, attitudes toward home life, housing accommodations, boy-girl relationships, sibling and parents' relationships have been studied.
It was felt that an analysis of the attitudes of boys and girls toward certain family relationships might indicate whether the placement of certain emphases in the Home and Family Life curriculum, might result in broader, richer living for the boys and girls in Phillis Wheatley High School in an Antonio, Texas.
An attempt has been made to answer the following questions: 1. What are the attitudes of high school girls and boys toward their social activities? 2. What are the attitudes of high school girls and boys toward relationships with siblings and parents?
It is the hope that teachers and parents through knowing the attitudes which influence the behavior of girls and boys may be able to help them to enjoy better relationships in their present and future family lives.
