What is it about?
Parents as agents of civic socialization seemed to have significant role in enhancing or deterring the civic development of adolescents. Parental civic socialization was strongly associated with the civic engagement of adolescents. High level of parental civic socialization appeared to have higher influence on male adolescents than females. Reinforcement of adolescents’ civic skills and engagements more at community level is needed to support adolescents to aspire to be strong civic actors that can contribute to positive changes in themselves, their families and communities.

Why is it important?
Young people do not seem to be interested in public and political life, and this is a matter of concern in developing countries. There is limited evidence on adolescents’ civic engagements, types of civic engagements, sex differences in civic engagements, and how families and cultural issues influence civic engagement of adolescents in developing countries like Ethiopia. This study contributes to addressing the knowledge gap based on cross cultural data on civic engagement of adolescents.
