Stott, Leland H. (1938) The relation of certain factors in farm family life to personality development in adolescents (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 106)
Although "the family" has been much written about, and studied from many points of view in the past, relatively little attention has been given by investigators to the problem of determining the factors which make for successful family life. The need for information of this sort is obvious, and in recent years a few studies have been made from this point of view. The present study was undertaken for the purpose of gathering further information about "normal" families and some of the home-environmental factors which are thought to contribute to, or hinder, the achievement of successful family life.
