This PhD thesis is focused on religion as practiced at home, the influence of religion on youngsters between the ages of 12 and 21 and their attitude in respect to social limits in Dutch society. The author explores the differences between religious and secular parents and their children, as well as the differences among the several religious groups. At the same time the researcher investigates if there is a correlation between religion intensity and the rearing of youngsters and their attitude towards social limits.
The results show, among other things, that compared with secular parents, religious parents put more emphases on norms and control. Secular parents, on the other hand, emphasize on orientation and expression. However, when we compare children of both groups there is little difference in attitude towards social limits. In his research concerning the separate religious groups, the researcher discovered some relations between religion intensity and the rearing of children. Due to the complexity of the subject matter, the author could only make a modest attempt to describe the final conclusions. Thus a first step is made towards an indication about the way children are reared, the attitude of youngsters from religious and secular families and the correlation that may exist.
The research is done with the following type of families: the oRC, Liberal Jewish, Sanatan Dharma Hindu, Sunni Muslim and secular families. A family consisting of two parents and a youngster filled in a total of four questionnaires, three of which were regular ones. A fourth questionnaire was designed by the researcher as to measure religion intensity. For this purpose he made a different version for each religious group.
