Parenting Practices and Children's Education Outcomes
Kan, K.; Tsai, W.D.
Economics of Education Review, v24 n1 p29-43 Feb 2005
This paper analyzes the effects of parenting practices on children's education. Our empirical analyses are based on household data from Taiwan. More specifically, we investigate the influence of parents' child-rearing practices (i.e., encouragement and punishment) on their children's education attainments and aspirations. We also explore the association between parents' socioeconomic background and their child-rearing practices. The empirical results help explain the relationship between family background and education attainments.
