Relations of Parenting Style and Parental Involvement with Ninth-Grade Students' Achievement.
Paulson, Sharon E.
Journal of Early Adolescence, v14 n2 p250-67 May 1994
Compared adolescents' and parents' perceptions of maternal and paternal demandingness, responsiveness, and parental involvement with schooling. Found that adolescents' reports of parenting correlated only moderately with parents' reports. Adolescents', but not parents', reports of parenting predicted students' achievement outcome, with parental involvement significantly predicting achievement apart from dimensions of parenting style.
