Parenting Stress is associated with harsh, negative parenting practices and difficulty monitoring youth's activities, practices that are linked to increased adolescent health risk behaviors. Youth participation in health risk behaviors has immediate and long-term consequences, contributing to diminished health, educational, and social outcomes. The study's purpose was to conduct a secondary analysis to identify factors that influence parenting stress in a national sample of 824 parents of adolescents ages 10-18, primarily mothers, minorities, and poor. The sample was part of a large multi-site, national study examining family-centered interventions to prevent youth substance use. Based on a conceptual model influenced by Abidin's Multivariate Model of Parenting Stress, this research question was addressed: To what extent are there relationships between Child Factors (Age, Social Skills, Problem Behaviors); Parent Factors (Gender, Health, Race/Ethnicity); Contextual Factors (Family Structure, Conflict, Social Support, Education, Income) and Parenting Stress? Using bivariate correlations and multiple and hierarchical regression, results indicated high levels of parenting stress in the sample. Variables related to the child (Age, Social Skills, Problem Behaviors) were the strongest predictors of parenting stress. This is one of the first studies to reflect the experience of underrepresented populations of parents of adolescents. The findings do not vary from those seen in other groups. Results indicate prevention efforts should occur early and be directed at helping parents and youth understand normal adolescent development. Strengthening communication and conflict resolution skills may increase family cohesion and involvement. Next steps in this research program include the development of methods to assess parenting stress and developing interventions to reduce parenting stress.
