Perceived Parenting, Positive and Negative Perceptions of Parents, and Late Adolescent Emotional Adjustment
Cliff McKinney, Reesa Donnelly, Kimberly Renk
First Published: 30 May 2007

Key Practitioner Message

  • Perceived parenting behaviours and affect towards parents may play an important role in predicting late adolescent emotional adjustment, particularly in the context of mothers’ and fathers’ interactions with their sons and daughters
  • Warm, authoritative parenting is associated with positive adjustment in late adolescents
  • When analysed simultaneously, late adolescents’ positive and negative perceptions of their parents alter the relationship between perceived parenting and late adolescent emotional adjustment
  • Indirect effects may play a significant role when analysing parenting variables
  • The importance of exploring the effects of parents and adolescents’ sex in parent‐adolescent relationships is demonstrated
