Jose's parents are in their fifties. They grew up in ghetto neighborhoods. They say that their
parents were very strict with them and that is why they turned out so well. Jose lives in a
suburban area that is mostly white. Lately, he and his parents have been arguing a lot about the
classes he takes, the activities he participates in, and what time he needs to be home, Jose
says they will not let him do things that everyone else is allowed to do. He snaps at them,
slams doors, and sometimes pretends he cannot hear them. Their response is to get stricter.
