The purpose of study is to gain insights from twenty-seven Hmong service providers who responded to a questionnaire regarding the causes of conflict between Hmong parents and their children in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Moreover, this research is to gain insights into Hmong service providers' awareness, observations, and experience in dealing with Hmong families and their adolescent children effectively. This study will also seek to gain understanding of the phenomenon of conflict within Hmong families and to examine a brief history of their lives and roles in their native country compared to where they live now. Findings from this study will help promote sensitivity and cultural awareness for educators, social workers, and other professionals to aid in the understanding of the problems and providing better services to these youth and their families.
