The survey provides an input on the effects of an American educational process on female and male Malaysian students' (acting as prospective parents) response to parent-related concerns. Intact population of 180 unmarried Malaysian students studying at Northern Illinois University was selected as the survey sampling; 83% (150) rated the 75-item questionnaire/ on a 5-to-l points Likert-type scale. The results suggested that there is deficiency in knowledge on parent-related concerns. This can be interpreted as indicative of adherence to traditional values. While this is still true, the results also gave the impression that there is an emerging need for prospective parents to receive training in parent education.
