Estimates of the relative influence of peers and parents on adolescents' drug use and other forms of deviance have inflated the importance of peers and underestimated the influence of parents. Following a brief review of major findings in research on parental-peer linkages, sources of distortion and overestimation in peer effects are identified: reliance on cross-sectional designs, which confound selection and socialization effects; reliance on perceptual reports of friends' behaviors, which…

Are Negative Peer Influences Domain Specific? Examining the Influence of Peers and Parents on Externalizing and Drug Use Behaviors
TLDR
It is suggested that peer influences are domain specific among Venezuelan youth, and deviant peer affiliations mediated the path from positive parenting to youth externalizing behaviors and peer drug-using affiliationsmediated the paths to the drug use outcomes.
Revisiting "What They Think": Adolescent Drinking and the Importance of Peer Beliefs.
TLDR
Evidence is found that beliefs related to peer drinking have both a direct and indirect impact on behavior and also play an important role in the friendship selection process, highlighting the importance of understanding how peers influence deviant behavior.
Parental and Peer Influences on the Risk of Adolescent Drug Use
TLDR
This research, although cross-sectional and limited to adolescents' self-reports, contributes to a growing literature on the direct and indirect influences of parents on their teens' substance use rates and speaks to the need for school- and community-based prevention efforts to focus on families as well as peers.
Peer influences on risk behavior: an analysis of the effects of a close friend.
TLDR
Almost 1,700 peer dyads in Grades 7 to 11 were studied over a 1-year period to estimate the influence of closest friends on sexual activity and binge drinking, and analyses suggested that peer influence was small but reliable when both selection effects and parallel events were taken into account.
The effect of peer influence and selection processes on adolescent alcohol use: a systematic review of longitudinal studies
TLDR
A systematic review of longitudinal studies that examined the effect ofpeer influence on adolescent alcohol use between January 1997 and February 2011 revealed that existing longitudinal studies are unable to elucidate the relative contribution and developmental sequence of peer influence and selection.
Can parental monitoring and peer management reduce the selection or influence of delinquent peers? Testing the question using a dynamic social network approach.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the effectiveness of monitoring and peer management depend on the type of behavior, the timing of its use, and whether adolescents feel overcontrolled by parents.
The Effect of Parenting on Adolescent Susceptibility to Peer Influence: Mediating Role of Self-Esteem
In the present research, we fill this gap through examining the effects of parenting strategies on SPI among adolescents. Specifically, we develop an integrative model of adolescent susceptibility to
Accounting for Projection Bias in Models of Delinquent Peer Influence: The Utility and Limits of Latent Variable Approaches
ObjectivesProjection effects have been shown to bias respondent perceptions of peer delinquency, but network data required to measure peer delinquency directly are unavailable in most existing
Effects of Parental Monitoring and Peer Deviance on Substance Use and Delinquency
From socialization theory, it was hypothesized that parental support and monitoring as well as peer deviance would influence individual trajectories of alcohol misuse, other substance use, and
Parenting Practices as Moderators of the Relationship between Peers and Adolescent Marijuana Use.
Using data from, a probability sample of 4,987 adolescents, we examine the degree to which closeness to mother, closeness to father, parental support, and parental monitoring buffer the relationship

TLDR
Examination of the relative influences of parents and peers on adolescent delinquency and marijuana use using data from a three-wave panel study of youths who were paired with a best friend reveals that friends are indeed the primary source of influence on youths' behavior, but that estimates of influence are grossly overstated in analyses relying upon respondents' perceptions of their friends' behavior.

Parental monitoring and peer influences on adolescent substance use.
TLDR
Poorly monitored adolescents are more likely to use drugs, and drug-using adolescents seek out like-minded friends, once an adolescent associates with drug- using peers, his or her own substance use approaches their level.
Parenting practices and peer group affiliation in adolescence.
TLDR
Data indicated that specific parenting practices were significantly associated with specific adolescent behaviors (academic achievement, drug use, self-reliance), which in turn were significantly related to membership in common adolescent crowds.

TLDR
The results suggest that developmental factors do influence the context of marijuana initiation and only measures of peer attachment and exposure and of the relative importance of the costs of use predict initiation for the oldest group.
