Effects of perceived parenting during adolescence on college alcohol use
Extensive research has been conducted examining the relationship between parenting practices and alcohol use in adolescents. However, there is little understanding about the long-standing effects of parenting on a child's alcohol use following matriculation into college. Minimal research has also been conducted examining the influences of parenting style and parental monitoring on alcohol expectancies, an underlying mechanism of alcohol use. This study examined the relationship between alcohol expectancies, alcohol use and related negative consequences, and perceived parenting using a computer-based survey with first-year undergraduate students. Linear and multiple regression analyses indicated that parental authority style was predictive of alcohol use for same-sex parent-child relationships. However, parental authority style was not predictive of alcohol expectancies or alcohol-related negative consequences. Parental monitoring was not predictive of alcohol expectancies, alcohol use, or related negative consequences. Implications and directions for further research are discussed.
