Mother-Child Self-Concept Transmission in Florida Model Follow Through Participants.
Tocco, T. Salvatore; Bridges, Charles M., Jr.
The purpose of this study was to: (1) examine the relationship of mothers' self-concept measures to children's self concept-measures; (2) analyze change in self-concept measures of children as a function of initial (beginning of school year) self-concept measures of mothers; and, (3) analyze change in self-concept measures of children as a function of change in self-concept measures of mothers. Self-concept measures were collected on 323 deprived mothers and their children. Canonical and factor analyses indicated that self-concept measures of mothers are related to self-concept measures of their children; and that beginning of school year self-concept measures of mothers are related to change scores of their children over the school year. The latter relationship appears to have practical as well as statistical significance. Prior research suggests that even in relatively standardized achievement data the correlation between status and growth appears to be about 0.10. Hence the figure of 0.307 between status and growth appears substantial. (Authors/JM)
