A Test of Self-Control Theory in a Mexican-American Sample
While many demographic groups have been used to explore the self-control theory, there has been little research using the Mexican population or those of differing generation. This paper explores the relationship between parenting, self-control, and delinquency in a sample of adolescents from the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods, using samples of Mexican-Americans and those of different generational status to test the generalizability of the theory.
