In this paper we have attempted to show some of the features of families of youths who live in boarding houses and go to high school. With this aim in mind we carried out a survey to find out the relationships between parents and youths and the eventual generations gap. Having analysed the questions from the questionnaire we found out that the youth most often speak within the family on various occasions and topics. A family is still the place where a growing youth perceives that he/she gets reaction. Should young people have any problems, the majority will confide in their parents and these are ready to help. Generally the young people seem to be happy in their families.
Key words: family, parents, youths, relationship between parents and youths, conversation.
