Abstract Critical reviews have highlighted the dearth of empirical evidence to substantiate claims made in the area of parent group education. This criticism prompted three studies which focused on the family and attitudinal outcomes of one particular model of parent group education, namely, Gordon's (1970) Parent Effectiveness Training (PET). The present studies have broken new ground by (a) examining attitudinal outcomes for fathers, (b) replicating attitudinal outcomes for mothers, and (c) investigating attitudinal change in Australian children whose parents had participated in PET. Increase in democratic attitudes was demonstrated for father PET graduates. The children of PET graduates were found to increase in the positive relationship with father and mother and to also increase in the negative relationship with father. Results suggest that parental participation in PET is influential in providing attitudinal outcomes for family members. In view of the vital role of the parent in the personal, social, and psychological adjustment of the child, the results further indicate the urgent need for ongoing research in the area of parent group education.
