Abstract or Summary
  • The major concerns of this study were: (1) the money management practices of teenage girls and their parents, (2) parental practices in teaching the use of money, (3) parental use of money to control behavior, (4) the sources of the teenage girls' spending money, and (5) the amount and disposition of the money. The subjects consisted of fifty-three tenth-grade girls at Scappoose Union High School and their parents. Data were gathered by a survey questionnaire. The general hypotheses tested were: 1. Teenagers' ability to manage money will not vary with the methods of supplying them with money. 2. Teenagers will receive the same amount of money from the family's income regardless of the method in which they receive their spending money from the family. 3. Teenagers will develop better money management habits if the family engages in planning as a family. 4. Teenagers' ability to manage money will not be affected by the use of money to reward or punish their behavior. 5. Teenagers' money management habits will be similar to their parents. 6. The source of money will not influence the use of money. From the results of this study several conclusions may be drawn: 1. That these teenagers' ability to manage money was not influenced by (a) the method of supplying them with family money, (b) the parental practices used in teaching them about money, or (c) the parental use of money to control behavior. 2. That there was a trend for these teenagers' ability to manage money to be similar to their parents. 3. That the amount of money which these teenagers received was related to the method by which they received family money. 4. That the method by which these teenagers received family money was related to their use of money.
