Summary

Parent educational beliefs, behaviors, and values and family sociodemographic characteristics were analyzed to clarify antecedents of children's adaptation to school and academic achievement. Extensive parent interviews, test data, and teacher ratings during kindergarten, and achievement test scores during first grade, were collected for a sample of 130 children. Multiple regression analyses revealed substantial predictions of child adaptation and achievement during kindergarten and first grade from parent interview variables, from sociodemographic variables, and from the combined variables. Findings support interpretation of parent beliefs, behaviors and values as intervening variables between sociodemographic variables and child adaptation and achievement. (Author/JMB)
