Abstract

This study examined the relationship between perceived parent academic socialisation of their children and the children’s well-being in four domains: depression, self-esteem, school adjustment, and substance use . The participants consisted of 809 Ethiopian high school students, mostly male (52 .9%) (mean age = 16 .8 years; SD = 1 .58 years) . Data were collected using self-report measures of perceived parental involvement in education support, depression, self-esteem, school adjustment, and substance use . Multiple regression analyses were used to predict aspects of child well-being from parent child academic socialisation . Generally, results showed that increased level of parental academic socialisation predicted lower depression symptoms, school adjustment problems, substance use, and also increased self-esteem among adolescents .
