Summary

Three communication programs were designed to improve the communication styles and the nature of interactions between parents and their sons or daughters attending college. The programs focused generally on: (1) telling parents what college life is like and about some of the major concerns and worries of students, and (2) presenting parents with different models of interacting with students. Two major communication programs consisted primarily of a series of mailings to parents and third involved direct personal contact with parents during a summer orientation. The results showed that in general, parental reactions were quite positive. Also, the series of mailed treatments appeared to have little or no impact on parental communication styles. In conclusion, it appeared that for the type of parents who participated in this program, a mailed treatment involving written material was not powerful enough to have an impact upon parental attitudes or communication styles.
