Abstract: There are limited theories on the process of academic procrastination in the literature. The present study aimed to identify two specific mechanisms of how academic procrastination may develop from parental psychological control. First, we examine how fear of failure may mediate the effect of maternal psychological control on academic procrastination. Next, we introduced a moderated mediation model to examine how maternal psychological control may influence the indirect effect of paternal psychological control on academic procrastination. Self-reported data were collected via an online survey from 240 undergraduates from the National University of Singapore, aged 18 to 25 years old. Our analysis indicated that fear of failure mediated the effect of maternal psychological control on academic procrastination. Maternal psychological control positively predicted fear of failure, and fear of failure positively predicted academic procrastination. Fear of failure also mediated the effect of paternal psychological control on academic procrastination. Paternal psychological control positively predicted fear of failure, and fear of failure positively predicted academic procrastination. Next, there was no interaction between maternal and paternal psychological control in predicting fear of failure. Finally, our moderated mediation model was not supported. Possible explanations for findings and potential implications in the procrastination literature are discussed.
