Drug Prevention Practices 17

behavioral intentions for high-authoritative parents compared to low-authoritative parents.
The subjective norm by authoritative parenting interaction is illustrated in Figure 3.
Behavioral intentions to be aware of a child’s environment is lowest among low authoritative
parents who perceive their important others to be generally less concerned about whether or not
the responding parent is aware of the child’s environment.
Research question 1 asked if attitudes or subjective norms were stronger predictors of
behavioral intentions to engage in drug-prevention practices. The answer to this RQ is
contingent upon the criterion variable. Specifically, attitudes were stronger predictors of
behavioral intentions for monitoring and awareness of the child’s environment. However,
subjective norms were stronger influences on behavioral intentions to talk with children about
drugs.
Hypothesis 2 predicted an attitude by authoritative parenting interaction, where the
attitude-behavioral intention relationship would be stronger for high authoritative parents. The
significant attitude by authoritative parenting interaction was detected for two of the three
criterion variables, parental monitoring and awareness of the child’s environment. This
hypothesis was partially supported.
Finally, for research question 2, we asked if subjective norms would interact with
authoritative parenting. The significant interaction was detected for only one of the three
criterion variables, awareness of the child’s environment.
Discussion
At the outset, we questioned why some parents were more likely than others to talk with
their child about drugs. In the progression of examining the parenting literature, it became clear
