Description

The goal of this research is to better understand how student motivation and resilience are related to parental environment, distinguishing between parental involvement and parental conflict. Student motivation was measured based on the reasons that students endorse for why they are studying. I predict that parental involvement will be positively related to motivation and resilience and that parental conflict will be negatively related to motivation and resilience. I will also be examining the interactions between parental and child genders and environment, motivation, and resilience. I will discuss the correlations among these variables and their implications.
