Jordanian parental efficacy about the reduction of adolescent behavior problems
Abstract:Parenting beliefs about efficacy in the prevention of adolescent problem behaviors in Jordan in terms of some sociodemographic factors are examined in this study. A group of 171 parents to adolescent children was randomly selected from several areas in northern Jordan. ANOVAs were used to examine the role of sociodemographic variables in explaining parents' beliefs about their efficacy in preventing such problems. Predictor variables included parents' educational attainment, family income, place of living, occupation, and gender. Results revealed a significant impact in the fields of educational attainment, gender, and family place of living on the parents' belief in their efficacy, while occupation and family income were less significant.
