At-Risk Adolescent Black Males: Findings for Internal/External Locus of Control, Self-Esteem and Parental Verbal Interaction.
Enger, John M.; And Others
The relationships among three factors for at-risk adolescent Black males was investigated: internal-external locus of control, self-esteem, and parental verbal interaction. Forty-two males in Grades 6, 7, and 8 who had been identified as at-risk by their teachers completed the Locus of Control Scale for Children, the Self-Esteem Inventory, and the Verbal Interaction Questionnaire. A moderate positive relationship between self-esteem and parental verbal interaction was consistent with a previous finding for White high school students. A moderate negative relationship between locus of control and self-esteem contrasted with a previous finding of no significant relationship for Black elementary children. A weak, yet significant, negative relationship was found between locus of control and parental verbal interaction. One table of data is included. (Contains 22 references.) (Author)
