Storyboard Text

  • My aim is to see if parents expectations of their child's drinking habit would become reality.
  • 115 parents were asked to guess how much alcohol their child regularly drank or would drink over the coming year
  • A year later 115 children were asked to say how much alcohol they actually consumed
  • I found that the children who drank the most alcohol were the ones whose parents had predicted a greater use of alcohol. It only took one parent to have a negative opinion about their child's drinking habits to show a relationship with high levels of drinking. However the child had a greater risk of higher alcohol use if both parents held negative beliefs.
  • The study showed that a parents prediction of their child's alcohol use was very accurate. The parents expectations were consistent with alcohol use after 12 months. it could be concluded that this is a self-fulfilling prophecy because what the parents expected came true. This study may show that a parents belief can have a massive influence on a child's behaviour.
  • The weaknesses of my study was that: -Parent may have not influenced their children at all, they might just be accurate at judging their childs alcohol use -Many other people influence children so there could be other explanations -The study only shows a correlation -The questionnaire may have resulted in social desirability bias
  • The strengths of my study was that: -There was large sample of participants -The study gives a strong warning to parents about having negative beliefs about their children
