Authoritative Parenting and Drug-Prevention Practices: Implications for Anti-Drug Ads for Parents

However, the interaction between attitude and authoritative parenting was significant (attitude X

= .03, p < .05). The interaction, plotted in Figure 1, indicates that
authoritative parenting does not distinguish parents’ intentions to monitor when attitudes toward
monitoring are low (less positive). Conversely, authoritative parenting magnified parents’
intention to monitor when attitudes are positive. That is, high authoritative parents have
significantly stronger intentions than low authoritative parents to monitor adolescent activities
when attitudes toward monitoring are high (more positive).
Intention to talk about drugs. In block one, attitudes ( = .18) and subjective norms ( =

In block two, neither interaction was statistically significant.
Intention to be aware of the child’s environment. In block one, attitudes significantly
predicted parents’ behavioral intent to be aware of the child’s environment ( = .35) although
