Gottfried, Adele Eskeles; Fleming, James S.; Gottfried, Allen W.
Child Development, v69 n5 p1448-60 Oct 1998
Tested the hypothesis that home environment positively predicts academic intrinsic motivation from childhood through early adolescence, controlling for socioeconomic status. Found that home environment had statistically positive and significant, direct and indirect paths to academic intrinsic motivation; children whose homes had greater emphasis on learning opportunities and activities were more academically intrinsically motivated.
