Parenting Processes and Aggression: The Role of Self-Control among Turkish Adolescents
Ozdemir, Yalcin; Vazsonyi, Alexander T.; Cok, Figen
Journal of Adolescence, v36 n1 p65-77 Feb 2013
The present study examined the direct and indirect relationships between parenting processes (parental closeness, parental monitoring, and parental peer approval), low self-control, and aggression. Participants were 546 adolescents aged 14-18 attending state high schools in Turkey. Participants completed a questionnaire that included measures of parenting processes, self-control, and aggression. Findings provided evidence of both direct and indirect effects of maternal and paternal parenting processes on aggression through low self-control. Specifically, results showed that maternal closeness, paternal peer approval and both maternal and paternal monitoring were positively and directly related to low self-control, and indirectly related to aggression through low self-control. Together, parenting processes and low self-control explained 21% of the variance in aggression. Implications for self-control theory and directions for future research are discussed. (Contains 2 figures and 5 tables.)
