Statement of Problem
In America today, there is much concern and interest in youthful behavior and development. As Americans, we have become restive about our youth, where we have failed them, and what part we have played in the dissatisfaction facing them, all of which has not been openly and squarely admitted.
All aspects of our social order, in the past half-century, have been changed. Our American primary group, which for centuries was deeply rooted in the home, has been torn from its anchorage in tradition and custom.
Youth today are somewhat bewildered as to the role that they are to play in our complex society. Instead of the traditional family, where each member plays his part and is governed by a central force, where each has his own responsibilities, we find various agencies attempting to assume responsibilities that once belonged to the family.
In the middle of all the confusion that Is about us and the vast problem of adjustment and change that Is confronting our youth, we must first examine some of the causes and attempt to find some way that will help them maintain the status quo, which we as adults have prescribed for them.
