MetadataShow full item record
For the development of prevention and intervention programs aimed at adolescent school problems, it is important to investigate factors that play a role. This study investigated the relationship between parental stress and adolescent school problems and whether adolescent stress mediates this relationship. The group of participants consisted of 236 parents (M = 44.36 years) and 241 adolescents (M = 11.4 years). Parent and adolescent stress levels were measured using questionnaires completed by both. In addition, the adolescent completed a questionnaire related to school problems. The results of the study showed that there is an indirect and direct relation between parental stress and adolescent school problems, with adolescent stress as a mediator. However, high parental stress was not directly associated with adolescent stress. The stress experienced by the adolescent, apparent from the literature, is mainly described as social comparison with peers and pressure to perform. It is therefore recommended to conduct further research intro stress experienced in the home-situation as well as on education, for the approach to adolescent stress level. In addition, is its recommended to conduct more specific research intro the degree of stress in adolescents and the consequences this has for well-being and school performance. This provides tools for prevention and intervention programs.
