Project description

Despite the importance of parenting for adolescent adjustment, empirical work usually finds only modest effects of parenting. In this project, it is examined whether adolescent adjustment is affected more strongly by adolescent perceptions of parenting than by parent-reported or observed parenting. Further, it is examined whether personality characteristics affect adolescent susceptibility to parenting because personality affects adolescents’ perceptions of parenting.
