ABSTRACT

This study examines whether parenting behaviors (i.e., parent academic involvement, parental monitoring, and parental abuse) explain the effect of housing and neighborhood poverty on juvenile delinquency. This study merged data from the Korea Welfare Panel Study and the Korean Statistical Information E-local services, using multi-level structural equation modeling (MLSEM) to analyze the mediating effects of parenting behaviors. The findings suggest that in families suffering double burden of housing and neighborhood poverty, parent academic involvement decreases, which in turn increases juvenile delinquency. An increase in housing and neighborhood poverty also directly increases juvenile delinquency. However, parental monitoring and parental abuse do not mediate the effect of housing and neighborhood poverty on juvenile delinquency. The policy implications include alleviating housing and neighborhood poverty, as well as encouraging parents’ involvement in school and/or adolescents’ academic activities, to prevent juvenile delinquency.
