Abstract

The current study examined the influence that perceived parenting, psychopathology, and the environment have on the development of projected parenting styles (defined for the study as the way participants predict they will parent when the opportunity arises) in college students. Overall, participants (N = 412) report that they will adopt a style of projected parenting that is similar to how they perceive their parents’ parenting. One exception is that participants of overprotective parents tended to project utilizing less overprotection, perhaps a sign of rejection for the control that was placed on them by their parents. Perceived paternal parenting was mediated by parental psychopathology, and surprisingly, perceived maternal psychopathology was found to be positively associated with positive projected parenting. Participants’ own psychopathology had no impact on projected parenting when examined simultaneously with the other variables.
