Fourth-year College Students Benefit from Less Permissive Parental Attitudes Toward Alcohol Use

Research Society on Alcoholism

Although parents have an important influence on drinking among students during their first year of college, there is limited research addressing whether parenting later in college has a similar effect. Researchers followed 1,429 students at three large public universities to examine the associations between parents’ permissiveness toward alcohol use and monitoring of students’ behavior and students’ drinking outcomes. Students completed surveys during the fall semesters of their first and fourth years of college. The study used a structural equation model, a form of causal modeling, to examine associations between parental permissiveness of college student alcohol use, parental monitoring of students’ behavior and students’ drinking and alcohol-related consequences at the two time points, controlling for parental modeling of risky drinking, peer norms, sex, and campus.
