The Influence of Adult Expectancy/Child Performance Discrepancies upon Childrens' Self-Concepts
Smith, Monte D.; And Others
American Educational Research Journal, 15, 2, 259-65, Spr 78
As hypothesized, academic failure produced greater discrepancies between parental expectancy and children's achievement among high socioeconomic status (SES) children than among low SES children, and decreased self-regard among the former but not the latter. Furthermore, relatively low academic achievement was associated with weakened self-concept for high but not low or middle SES children. (Author/CP)
