The National Survey of Moral Formation: A Study of Parental and Teenage Values is a multiyear effort to explore the moral universe of parents, the values of their teenage children, and the points of both convergence and divergence between the two. Our interest in the ecology of moral formation highlights the institutional contexts—families, schools, popular media, friendship networks, and faith communities—that influence today’s youth. This national survey is unique in its breadth, in the size of the sample, and in the fact that it examines both a parent and teen from the same household.
