Bidirectional Associations Between Self‐Regulation and Parenting Styles in Early Adolescence
adolescent self-regulation, parenting styles
The goal of this study was to explore bidirectional associations between teens’ self-regulation and maternal and paternal parenting styles (i.e., authoritative, authoritarian, and permissive-indulgent) over one year. As part of an ongoing longitudinal study, 489 teens ages 11–16 (51% female, 70% European American, 69% in two-parent households) and their parents completed questionnaires on two occasions. Analyses revealed high temporal stability of parenting and self-regulation over time. No cross-lagged effects emerged in either authoritative parenting model. Bidirectional effects were observed in the maternal authoritarian parenting model only. Child effects on parenting were revealed in both permissive-indulgent parenting models. The interpretation of these ﬁndings and their implications for future research are delineated in the discussion.
