Why This Indicator Matters

Children's long-term development and success can greatly depend on the support and care they receive at home from their family. A stable and caring family environment in which all family members care for and appreciate each other is the most beneficial to a child. In addition to meeting the basic needs of food, shelter and clothing, an optimal family environment might include the following qualities: members with unconditional love for each other, parents spending time with their children, parents listening to their children, parents serving as good role models- understanding that children learn from what they see happening and parents who value education. These values are key to creating en environment that is the most conducive to positive outcomes for the child.

Since 1995, the Center for Drug and Health Studies at the University of Delaware has administered an annual survey to public school students about alcohol, tobacco and drug use. The Delaware School Survey is an annual survey of 5th, 8th and 11th grade public school student in Delaware. This study is the continuation of a survey that was first administered to Delaware students in Spring, 1989. Since 2004, the Delaware School Survey has been jointly sponsored by the Delaware Legislature through the Delaware Health Fund and Prevention Block Grant funding. It has become a valuable tool in assessing trends of questions on school behavior, health habits and parental interaction. In recent years, the study has shown an increased interest in safety, parental involvement, educational needs and healthy lifestyles.
