Relationship of Perceived Parenting Styles, Locus of Control Orientation, and Self-Concept among Junior High Age Students.
McClun, Lisa A.; Merrell, Kenneth W.
Psychology in the Schools, v35 n4 p381-90 Oct 1998
Investigates relationships between adolescents' perceptions of their parents' responsiveness and demandingness, locus-of-control orientation, and self-concept rating with students in eighth and ninth grades (N=198). Findings indicate authoritative style of parenting may contribute to development of self-adequacy by being associated with internal locus-of-control orientation and stronger self-concept, whereas permissive and authoritarian styles of parenting may be associated with negative patterns of socioemotional development.
