HBSC Spain publishes: Parental knowledge and adolescent adjustment: substance use and health-related quality of life.

This study analysed two models (maternal and paternal) in which parental care and sources of parental knowledge moderated the relationship between parents' knowledge about their adolescents' lives and adolescents' substance use and health-related quality of life. Results showed that increased parents' knowledge about their adolescents' lives reduced adolescents' substance use and increased their quality of life. A limited effect was found with respect to the moderation relationship. Parental care was the most relevant variable in the health-related quality of life, while knowledge was the most relevant one for substance use.
