Parenting Styles and Adjustment Outcomes among College Students
Love, Keisha M.; Thomas, Deneia M.
Journal of College Student Development, v55 n2 p139-150 Mar 2014
Research has demonstrated that parenting styles partially explain college students' academic adjustment. However, to account for academic adjustment more fully, additional contributors should be identified and tested. We examined the fit of a hypothesized model consisting of parenting styles, indicators of well-being, and academic adjustment among 315 college students. The model demonstrated a close fit to the data and contained several significant paths.
