Abstract

A sample of 101 first-year college students was surveyed to examine the relationship between gender, authoritative parenting, aptitude, self-esteem, initial academic achievement (i.e., first-semester GPA), and the overall adjustment of traditional first-year college students. Correlation coefficients demonstrated that authoritative parenting style was positively related to males' initial GPA, but not significantly associated with females' GPA.
