MORALES CASTILLO, MIGUEL  and  DAVILA, EDUARDO AGUIRRE. Home-based Parental Involvement and Academic Performance during Adolescence. Rev. colomb. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.2, pp.137-160. ISSN 0121-5469.

The article analyzes home-based parental involvement as a child-rearing strategy associated with the academic performance of adolescents. Through a systematic review of studies with empirical results in six databases, this article shows the multidimensional influence of parental involvement -expressed in monitoring, support, communication, instruction, academic socialization, and availability of resources- at home. The reported findings suggest that parents' beliefs, support, and communication are relevant in order to understand the effect of parental involvement on adolescents' academic performance. It is, nevertheless, important to interpret these effects with the mediation of different adolescents' personal factors.

Keywords : child-rearing practices; parental involvement; home-based involvement; monitoring; support; communication; instruction; academic socialization; parents' availability of resources; academic performance; adolescence.
