The purpose of the researcher was to investigate the attitude of parents of elementary four levels requiring the least and Larson's (1977) systemic, school children toward the family involvement of Talley family-oriented model of intervention (a) home visit, (b) child management group, (c) workshop for parents, and (d) mothers' / fathers' group in a systemic family-oriented counseling program. Sample size was 54 subjects. The independent variables investigated were family structure, number of children, and highest level of education. The dependent variables employed were scores from the following subscales of the Parent Attitude Survey: Scale 1 (If, in addition to family counseling, the school were to offer help to families in the community, which of the following do you think would be the most beneficial?), Scale 2 (In addition to family counseling, which do you think should be most frequently used?), and Scale 3 (If you need help, which would you use?). Three composite null hypotheses were tested at the .05 level of significance employing a three-way analysis of variance (general linear model). The results of the present study appeared to support the following generalizations: 1. Parents support services. 2. No association exists between family structure and any service. 3. No association exists between number of children and any service. 4. No association exists between highest level of education and any service.
