Taris, Toon W.; Bok, Inge A.
Early Child Development and Care, v132 p93-104 May 1997
Used structural equation model to explore relationship between parenting style and Dutch young adult offsprings' depression and locus of control. Found that loving, caring parenting styles predicted lower depression levels. A loving, caring upbringing provided by fathers predicted a shift toward an internal locus of control, but a similar upbringing provided by mothers resulted in external control orientations.
