Abstract: Drawing on the spillover mechanism, the relationships among parental job insecurity, authoritarian parenting behaviors, youth's self-efficacy, and work attitudes were examined. Specifically, parental job insecurity was hypothesized to be positively associated with (1) authoritarian parenting behaviors, and (2) youth's perception of parental job insecurity. In turn, we hypothesized that both authoritarian parenting behaviors and youth's perceptions of parental job insecurity were negatively associated with youth's self efficacy. Finally, self-efficacy was predicted to be positively associated with youth's work attitudes. Data were collected from 178 management undergraduates and their parents. Structural equation modeling results suggested that paternal job insecurity was positively associated with authoritarian parenting behaviors while maternal job insecurity was negatively associated with authoritarian parenting behaviors. Additionally, while the relationship between mothers' authoritarian parenting behaviors and youth's self-efficacy was supported, the relationship between fathers' authoritarian parenting behaviors and youth's self-efficacy was not. Youth's self efficacy was positively associated with their work attitudes. Implications of the findings are discussed. © 2003 Elsevier Science (USA). All rights reserved.
