Abstract

Comparison of student leaders' (55 boys and 59 girls) perceptions of their social skills to their parents' (71 fathers and 90 mothers) perceptions of the students' behaviors, using the Social Performance Survey Schedule, showed significant differences. Student leaders perceived themselves as exhibiting more positive social behavior than did their parents. Mothers perceived their children as more socially skillful than their fathers did.
