This article reports the relations of the well-being of college students whose parents immigrated to America from Arab countries with their perceptions of their parents' (a) acculturation behaviors (i.e., openness to the American culture and preservation of the Arab culture) and (b) control. Results indicate that the perceived acculturation behaviors interacted with perceived parental control to predict students' subjective well-being. An expected positive association between parental openness to American culture and students' well-being is attenuated among students with autonomy-granting (low-control) parents. Conversely, a positive association between parental preservation of the Arabic culture and well-being is stronger among students with autonomy-granting parents. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
