The purpose of this study was to determine how African-American fathers of 10-14-years-olds viewed their assets and limitations as parents, and to find out how children from this age group saw the parent performance of their fathers. The Parent Success Indicator was administered to 102 fathers and to 104 adolescents. Significant differences were found between generations on five of six subscales. The independent variables entering the greatest effect on how both generations perceived parental success were amount of time father and child spent together, having an adult at home when a child returns from school, and gender of child.
