Cross-Generation Perceptions of Academic Competence: Parental Expectations and Adolescent Self-Disclosure.
Bornholt, L. J.; Goodnow, J. J.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v14 n4 p427-47 Oct 1999
Examined the role of parents acting as a social influence on 11- to 16-year-olds' self-knowledge about competence at academic activities. Found that parent- adolescent agreement was stronger with mothers than fathers and for aspects of self-knowledge that make direct inferences about abilities rather than indirect inferences. Results were similar in coed and single-sex contexts. (Author/KB)
