AbstractThis study focused on value transmission in the family and assessed adolescents? acceptance of the values their parents want to transmit to them (socialisation values), identifying some factors that may affect the level of acceptance. Specifically, actual value agreement between parents, parental agreement as perceived by adolescents, parent?child closeness and promotion of child?s volitional functioning, were considered as predictors. Participants were 381 family triads (father, mother and adolescent child) from northern Italy; the adolescents (46.2% male) were all high?school students from 15 to 19 years of age. Both parents and their children filled out self?report questionnaires. Findings showed a moderate level of acceptance in families, suggesting the presence of similarities as well as differences between parents? socialisation values and adolescents? personal values. All the predictors considered except parents? actual agreement, were found to be significantly and positively related to acceptance. Implications for moral development are discussed and suggestions for education and future research are provided
