Authoritative Parenting and Drug-Prevention Practices: Implications for Anti-Drug Ads for Parents
Unformatted Document Text:  Drug Prevention Practices 1 Authoritative Parenting and Drug-Prevention Practices: Implications for Anti-Drug Ads for Parents Abstract This research employed the theory of reasoned action to investigate the role of authoritative parenting in three drug-prevention behaviors: (a) parental monitoring, (b) parent-child discussions, and (c) awareness of the child’s environment. A phone survey of 158 parents of adolescents in 7 th , 9 th , and 11 th grade revealed that high authoritative parents were significantly more likely than low authoritative parents to discuss family rules, discuss strategies to help their children avoid drugs, and engage in parental monitoring. Additionally, authoritative parenting moderated the attitude-behavioral intention relationship for parental monitoring and awareness of the child’s environment, with the weakest relationship detected for low authoritative parents. These findings were discussed in terms of their utility in helping design and target anti-drug messages for parents more effectively.

Implications for Anti-Drug Ads for Parents
Abstract
This research employed the theory of reasoned action to investigate the role of authoritative
parenting in three drug-prevention behaviors: (a) parental monitoring, (b) parent-child
discussions, and (c) awareness of the child’s environment. A phone survey of 158 parents of
adolescents in 7
th
, 9
th
, and 11
th
grade revealed that high authoritative parents were significantly
more likely than low authoritative parents to discuss family rules, discuss strategies to help their
children avoid drugs, and engage in parental monitoring. Additionally, authoritative parenting
moderated the attitude-behavioral intention relationship for parental monitoring and awareness of
the child’s environment, with the weakest relationship detected for low authoritative parents.
These findings were discussed in terms of their utility in helping design and target anti-drug
messages for parents more effectively.
