|Other Titles:||Warm Support vs. Iron Discipline?The Relation between Parenting and Adolescent Mental Health|
Department od Education, NTNU
Based on the data analysis from the Taiwan Education Panel Survey (TEPS), this study examines how adolescents' mental health is correlated with parenting behavior among 12,753 ninth-grader students in Taiwan. In addition to reconfirming the positive influence of parental support and negative effect of harsh parenting on adolescents' mental health, this study also contributes to the literature as follows. First, as long as harsh parenting does not prevail, proper discipline and monitoring are positively correlated with adolescents' mental health. Second, high parental support could mitigate the negative impact of harsh parenting. Third, fathers' parenting effect differs from mothers', and both are equally important. Lastly, the positive influence of pareatal monitoring on child's mental health mentioned above only occurs in father-son and mother-daughter pairs. The results suggest that the same-sex parent may play a more crucial role in adolescents' mental health development. Moreover, although parental monitoring has a positive effect on adolescents' mental health, parental care and support remain the most crucial factors.
