Tested equivalence of theoretical model of parenting behaviors linking financial strain to adolescents' achievement for African American and European American families and single- and two-parent families. Found no significant differences in structural equation models between ethnic/racial groups or between family types. Negative parent-adolescent relationship and parental school involvement mediated the relation between financial strain and adolescents' academic achievement. (Author/KB)
