The study examined the moderating effect of valuing parental control between the levels of parental control and perceived parental support among Filipino adolescents. It expands the notion of Rudy & Grusec (1996) who explained that having high levels of parental control in East Asian cultures may lead to high levels of parental support, when it is valued by the child. The current mixed method study surveyed 113 Filipino adolescents and then conducted 2 focus group discussions to further analyze the quantitative data. The Child Parental Acceptance-Rejection/Control Questionnaire Short Form (Rohner, 1989) was used to assess both parental control and perceived parental support, respectively. The results indicated that high levels of parental control positively predicts perceived parental support, and valuing parental control moderates the relationship between parental control and perceived parental support. Results show a moderate negative relationship between parental control and perceived parental support which imposes that even though adolescents value the control of their parents, most adolescents do not perceived the control from their parents as parental support. Data from the qualitative study further verify this phenomenon of adolescents valuing parental control but perceiving it as low parental support.
