Abstract

A growing body of research suggested that emotion regulation plays an important role in the link between parenting behaviors and child outcomes. Specifically, Morris, Silk, Steinberg, Myers, and Robinson (2007) argued in their tripartite model of family influence that parenting practices affect child emotion regulation, which in turn impact child outcomes. In this study, I extend the model by examining the direct and indirect effect of two types of parenting behaviors (parental monitoring and parental support) on adolescent patience via emotion regulation. A total of 449 adolescents aged 15-19 years (M = 16.09, SD = 0.99) completed surveys on the study variables. Results revealed that both parental monitoring and parental support were related to higher levels of adolescent patience and anger regulation.
