This longitudinal study examined socioemotional antecedents of adolescent school adjustment. Findings indicated that early and later parental problem-solving support accounted for 13 percent of variance in high school adjustment. Early and later parental problem-solving support, peer competence, externalizing behavior, and emotional health/self-esteem in early middle childhood accounted for 32 percent of variance in high school adjustment regardless of early academic achievement.
