Parenting Style and Adolescents' School Performance in Mainland China
Kang, Yanrong; Moore, Joyce
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 1 p133-138 2011
Parenting style, as a widely studied topic, has been used by researchers and educators in the US to predict students' academic achievements. Despite its theoretical and practical significance, no much work has been conducted to test the generalizability of parenting research framed in the Western culture to the Chinese population. Parenting styles in this study were measured by the PAQ (parenting authority questionnaire) filled out by 122 eighth graders in mainland China and the relationship between their school report grades and the parenting styles they received was examined. Our results indicate that although authoritative parenting style may be universally beneficial to the human species including the Chinese population, authoritarian parenting style, as one of the most popular parenting styles among Chinese parents, is closely associated with high school performance of adolescents.
