" ... the purpose of this study is to consider how the arrest of a youth affects parenting. In order to explore the research question, this study tries to integrate social control and life course theories of delinquency in understanding the link between delinquency and parenting. It uses data from the 1997 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth. A sub-sample was used of youths who were 12 years old in 1997. In this study, parenting is defined as emotional and behavioral attachment to parents and parental monitoring. The results of the study are mixed. They show that arrest influences parenting partially. With respect to emotional attachment, arrested children report both mothers and fathers continue to show less closeness with arrested children than non-arrested children a year after the arrest. However, there appears to be positive changes in parental respect by arrested children and parental behavior toward arrested children. On the other hand, there was no evidence of increased parental monitoring after the arrest."

This dissertation examined effects and paths between children's delinquent and criminal behaviors and parenting styles using interactional theory. The author used data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 Cohort (NLSY 97). In order to determine parenting styles, a hierarchical clustering method was used, together with Baumrind's (1971) categorization of parenting styles as authoritative, authoritarian, and permissive. For the main analysis, this study employed path analysis. The results showed that children's criminal and delinquent behaviors had greater effects on parenting styles than parents had on children's delinquent and criminal behaviors. Although this study did not find the hypothesized patterned paths between parenting styles and children's delinquent and criminal behaviors, the results for effects of parenting styles and children's delinquent and criminal behaviors showed how those relationships influence each other.
