Canadian Teens Enjoy More Freedom than French and Italian Peers
It has been suggested by a new study that Canadian teenagers have the privilege of more freedom as compared to their peers of France and Italy.
The study was led by researchers from the University of Montreal, Universite Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Italy and the Universite de Rennes in France.
It has been examined by the scientists that how the parents express their fashion and emotional bonds and has brought the behavioral control to deal with the adolescents.
The comparison was made between Italy, Canada and France because they have certain common things like Catholic history, advanced industrialization and Latin languages.
Teenagers, whose parents were born in their country of residence, were involved in the study and they were asked to fill the questionnaire.
There were 522 Canadians from Montreal, involving 45.2% boys and 54.8% girls, 398 Italians from Milan involving 52.8% boys and 47.2% girls and 336 French from Rennes involving 34.2% boys and 65.8% girls.
Adolescents were questioned about the communication, frequency of conflict, tolerance of friend-related activities, rules, discipline and emotional bonding between them and their parents.
"Parents are perceived as emotionally bonded by teens from all three countries, yet perception of parental control contrasted between Italy and Canadaā€¯, said Michel Claes, a psychology Professor from the University of Montreal psychology.
He said that by making comparisons between the parents of these three countries, they have found that Italian mothers and fathers are strict.
