Parents’ Major Role in the Religious Lives of Young Adults

Children of parents who believe that religion is very important, and who display their commitment by attending services, are most likely to transmit religiosity to their children. As they mature, those children generally have more positive outcomes in areas of mental health and compassion for others, and demonstrate higher levels of social involvement, moral compassion and purposefulness, according to data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health. Yet, the National Study of Youth and Religion indicates that many parents abdicate the religious and spiritual guidance of their children.
