Conflict management and family communication patterns are influenced by culture
and tradition, suggesting that differences may exist between different cultures.
Many studies have been done on conflict management and family communication
patterns in Western families, as well as in Chinese families. This study aims to
examine conflict management strategies and family communication patterns among
Malaysian East Coast Malay adolescents, from an Interaction Theory approach.
360 survey questionnaires were distributed to Malay adolescents in urban areas in
states located in the East Coast of the Peninsular Malaysia. Results indicate high
conformity and low conversation characterize family communication amongst
respondents. This study also found that majority of the adolescents surveyed use
avoidance and collaborating strategies rather than a dominating strategy during
conflicts with their parents. This study shows that conflict strategies practiced by
adolescents have the potential to maintain harmony in parent-child relationships.
