Parental and Peer Influences on Leisure-Time Physical Activity in Young Adolescents.
Anderssen, Norman; Wold, Bente
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v63 n4 p341-48 Dec 1992
This study, involving 904 adolescents, examined the influence from parents and friends on adolescents' self-reported level of leisure-time physical activity. Survey responses revealed that, although no one type of parental/friend influence was greater than another, parental and peer physical activity and support did influence adolescent physical activity.
