This project employs mixed methods, including traditional quantitative interviews, daily diary checklists, and qualitative interviews, to investigate whether traditional family values and practices play a critical role in shaping Latino adolescents' risk for a number of problematic outcomes. The study takes place in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. A total of 540 adolescents are recruited from the ninth and tenth grades of three high schools. Adolescents and their parents complete a personal interview and a fourteen day diary checklist for two consecutive years. In addition, a subset of 54 families annually participate in the Ecocultural Family Interview, which is an established qualitative Interview designed to provide a more In-depth view of the dynamics of the socialization, daily manifestation, and developmental implications of family obligation and assistance.
