Since in Israel the adjustment of the Asian African family has been more difficult than that of the European family, intergenerational conflict would be expected to be greater in the former group. This study distinguishes between identification with parents and considering them as appropriate role models, and agreement and acceptance of parental authority. It was hypothesized that in contrast to youth of Western descent, youth of Yemenite descent would identify less with their parents, and less likely feel that their parents are able to advise them, but would more readily accept parental authority, and more likely agree with their parents' values. All the hypotheses were confirmed. Sometimes, however, the findings were significant for only one of the sexes.
