Family Religious Involvement, Parenting Practices and Academic Performance in Adolescents
Park, Hae Seong; Bonner, Patricia
School Psychology International, v29 n3 p348-362 2008
This project investigated the impacts of family religious involvement and family religious affiliations on parenting practices and academic performance. This study utilized data from the base-year and first follow-up of the Education Longitudinal Study: 2002/2004 (ELS). A series of statistical techniques were incorporated to examine the nature of the overall associations. The results revealed that parents' religious involvement with their children is related to their parenting practices and their children's academic performance, but this link is mediated by the parents' religious affiliation. Significant associations among religious involvement, parenting practices for family socialization and academic performance suggest that a higher level of family religious participation indicates a level of social impact on education that leads to better academic performance. Implications for researchers and parents were discussed. (Contains 6 tables.)
