Parenting and Children’s School Achievement: A Multiethnic Perspective

This study is an examination of the relations between parenting and the school performance of fourth- and fifth-grade children in Asian-American, Latino, and European-American families. Five aspects of parenting were studied: (a) expectations for children’s educational attainment, (b) grade expectations, (c) basic childrearing beliefs (i.e., development of autonomy, development of conformity to external standards, and importance of monitoring children’s activities), (d) self-reported behaviors (i.e., creating an academically enriching environment and helping with homework), and (e) perceptions of parental efficacy.
