Description

This presentation will examine both mothers’ and fathers’ psychological control, knowledge of youth whereabouts, activities and peers, and acceptance as related to depressive symptoms and substance use (i.e., alcohol and marijuana) among children of substance abusers. After controlling for child age and fathers’ knowledge of youth, mothers’ knowledge of youth whereabouts, activities, and peers contributed to lower depressive symptoms which contributed to less likelihood of ever having tried alcohol and marijuana. Controlling for child age and fathers’ parenting, mothers’ use of psychological control and acceptance contributed to lower depressive symptoms which contributed to less likelihood of ever having tried alcohol.
