A written inquiry in Flanders by 1224 pupils with an average age of 17 years shows that a positive attitude towards faith and/or a symbolic, interpretive capacity to think about questions of faith is related to significant parental involvement in a child's faith and a generally supportive and engaged style of education. This research shows that young people most often experience support from the mother concerning general education and religious education. Fathers who are more involved in faith seem generally to be experienced by their children as more responsive and more engaged in religious education than fathers who are less involved in faith. A divorce of the parents seems to be most important in regards to the child's perception of the education given by the father. This research shows that the experience of parental divorce has no direct influence on adolescents' attitudes towards faith.
