Relationships between adolescent functioning and parent support, behavioral control, and psychological control were examined among European American and African American adolescents. A number of correlations were significant, including maternal support and academic achievement and self-esteem, and paternal psychological control and self-esteem. Findings support examining parenting dimensions independently rather than combining them to form parenting styles. (Author/SD)
