Moran, Benjamin L.; DuBois, David L.
Journal of Early Adolescence, v22 n4 p407-35 Nov 2002
Relations of social support and self-esteem to problem behavior were investigated among young adolescents. Three models were evaluated, and the mediated and direct effects model was found best fitting. Social support and self-esteem predicted less involvement in problem behavior, and unique variance in peer self-esteem predicted greater problem behavior. (Author)
