GRACIA, Enrique; FUENTES, María C y GARCIA, Fernando. Neighborhood Risk, Parental Socialization Styles, and Adolescent Conduct Problems. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.3, pp.265-278. ISSN 1132-0559.
This article aims to analyze the influence of parental socialization styles (authoritarian, authoritative, indulgent and neglectful), and perceived neighborhood risk on three indicators of conduct problems in adolescence (school misconduct, delinquency, and drug use). The sample consists of 1,017 adolescents, aged between 12 and 17. Results from four multivariate factorial designs yielded only main effects of parenting styles and neighborhood risk. Adolescents from authoritative and indulgent families showed lower conduct problems than those with authoritarian and neglectful parents. Also, higher levels of perceived neighborhood risk were significantly associated with more conduct problems. There were no significant interaction effects between parenting styles and perceived neighborhood risk, but results yielded a significant interaction effect between neighborhood risk and sex. Overall, results do not support the idea that parenting styles are more effective under certain neighborhood risk conditions, and suggest that neighborhood risk influences adolescents' psychosocial adjustment beyond the influence of parental socialization styles.
