National Study: Teens with Stronger Parent Influence Fare Better in Health, Education. Issue Brief
America's Promise Alliance (NJ1)
This issue brief is presented as an update to "Every Child, Every Promise: Turning Failure Into Action." A national sample of more than 2,000 teenagers and 2,000 of their parents in a telephone poll indicates that the overwhelming majority of young people ages 12-17 say they have a "mostly" or "very" close relationship with their mothers and fathers and can usually or always talk with their parents about problems they might be having with school or friends. Study findings indicate that teens with stronger parent influence fare better in health and education, both to avoiding risky behavior such as alcohol or other drug use and to positive outcomes such as volunteering or doing well at school. [For "Every Child, Every Promise: Turning Failure Into Action," see ED505358.]
