On Relative Effects of Parenting Behaviors and Parent-Adolescent Relationships on Adolescent Self-Evaluations.
Masche, J. Gowert
While parenting, attachment, individuation, and identity theories suggest relationships between parent-adolescent relationships, parenting behaviors, and adolescent self-evaluations, these theories differ in whether parent-adolescent relationship quality or parenting behaviors are more directly linked to adolescent self-evaluations. For this study, 970 students (seventh and tenth grades) completed supra-scales for parent-adolescent relationships, parenting, and self-evaluations. These sets of scales intercorrelated moderately to highly. Two mediation models according to attachment and individuation/identity theories were tested. Hierarchical regression analyses revealed that effects of the parent-adolescent relationships scales on adolescent self-evaluations were mediated by the scales of parenting behaviors. These results supported the individuation/identity hypothesis that parenting behaviors are more closely linked to adolescent self-evaluations and that they mediate the effects of parent-adolescent relationships.
