Abstract

The literature documents researchers' common interest in parental influence on adolescent faith development. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between parental monitoring and faith development as well as the mediating effect of parental support and contact. Panel survey results from two longitudinal samples of 99 and 111 high school seniors across the transition into college yielded mixed results. For the first dataset, there was no significant effect of parental monitoring on faith development variables, whereas for the second dataset, there was a positive and significant relationship, with parental support partially mediating the relationship between parental monitoring and adolescent faith development.
