Parental Religiosity, Family Processes, and Youth Competence in Rural, Two-Parent African American Families.
Brody, Gene H.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v32 n4 p696-706 Jul 1996
Tested a model linking parental formal religiosity to early adolescents' academic competence and socioemotional adjustment. Found that greater parental religiosity led to more cohesive family relationships, less interparental conflict, and fewer externalizing and internalizing problems in adolescents. Found that religiosity indirectly influenced self-regulation through its positive relationship with family cohesion and negative relationship with interparental conflict. (AA)
