Influence of Self-Esteem, Locus of Control and Parenting Styles on Coping Styles of Students

Uma K. [3] | Manikandan K.


Abstract: In daily life, students are exposed to a wide range of potentially difficult academic situations, which could negatively affect their academic performance and health as well. To reduce this pressure related to academics, vital personality characteristics and parental support have an essential role. Among those factors, self-esteem and locus of control are the critical determinants for the coping aspects of the students. This will support student engagement, persistence, and academic success. Researches have given importance to the proactive approach, which emphasizes the prominence of coping strategies in preventing harmful consequences. In recent years, a growing emphasis has been given to the extent to which individuals can combine the different coping strategies and the adaptive consequences associated with them. However, studies related to person-centered approaches are still more minor in which a person's personality features and environment have a significant emphasis. In the current study, the researchers have put effort into understanding the influential role of self-esteem, locus of control, and perceived parenting styles on students' coping styles. The study tries to understand the level of involvement of the study variable in academic stress. For study 402, college students were randomly selected. A few scales like the perceived parenting style scale, brief self-esteem scale, locus of control scale, and brief cope scale were used to study the variables. To understand the influence of the variables, statistical analyses like 3 way ANOVA, t-test, and cell means were calculated to understand the interactions. The results show the interaction between parenting style, self-esteem, and locus of control. In turn, these have an impact on the coping patterns of the students.
