Authoritative Parenting, Child Competencies, and Initiation of Cigarette Smoking.
Jackson, Christine; And Others
Health Education Quarterly, v21 n1 p103-16 Spr 1994
Study of 937 children, grades 3-8, showed that authoritative parenting (balancing responsiveness and control) increased child competence; low self-esteem, confidence, and achievement were associated with beginning and continuing smoking; authoritative parenting was inversely related to child smoking; and children were more likely to smoke if parents did.
