Transitioning Role of Parents in Binge Drinking in the Context of Alcohol Abstinent Religiosity Among Christian College Students
College students transition from the parental home environment to the college environment. This study examined the transitioning role of parent/child relationships and religiosity in Christian college student heavy episodic drinking (HED). Analysis was conducted using data from a health-risk behavior survey administered on campus, n = 434. Believing the body is the temple of God was the only statistically significant variable in the logistic regression model, 78% less likely to engage in HED. These results show there is a transitioning role of parents during the college years with parents having less influence on HED than religious belief on a Christian college campus.
