This research examined whether mothers' expectations about their children's drinking behavior influenced their children's future alcohol use through self-fulfilling prophecies. It also investigated whether children's self-esteem, family social class, or the valence of mother expectations moderated this process. Analyses of longitudinal data from 505 mother-child dyads yielded results consistent with a self-fulfilling prophecy. The inaccurate portion of mother expectations predicted children's…

Self-Fulfilling Prophecies
TLDR
The generally small self-fulfilling effects reported in the literature may underestimate the power of negative self-FULfilling prophecies to harm targets because studies have not taken into consideration the possibility that negative beliefs may be more likely than positive ones to accumulate across multiple perceivers.

Data from 658 mother-child dyads were consistent with the conclusion that children had a self-fulfilling effect on their mothers' hostility but that mothers did not have a reciprocal self-FULfilling effects on their children's hostility.
The mediation of mothers' self-fulfilling effects on their children's alcohol use: self-verification, informational conformity, and modeling processes.
TLDR
In both samples and across several years of adolescence, there was a significant indirect effect of mothers' beliefs on children's alcohol use through children's self-assessed likelihood of drinking alcohol in the future.

Self-Verification as a Mediator of Mothers’ Self-Fulfilling Effects on Adolescents’ Educational Attainment
TLDR
Self-verification processes mediated self-fulfilling prophecy effects within a different context and with a different belief and a different outcome than has been used in prior research, indicating that mothers’ beliefs about their adolescents' educational outcomes had a significant indirect effect on adolescents’ academic attainment through adolescence’ educational aspirations.
Self-fulfilling prophecy effects of mothers' beliefs on children's alcohol use: accumulation, dissipation, and stability over time.
TLDR
Findings suggest that mothers' inaccurate beliefs repeatedly assessed across time had additive self-fulfilling effects on their children's subsequent alcohol use assessed at a single later point in time, which served to exacerbate differences in the alcohol use of children who had been consistently exposed to unfavorable versus favorable beliefs year after year.
The Role Of The Self-Fulfilling Prophecy In Young Adolescents' Responsiveness To A Substance Use Prevention Program.

Four studies tested the hypothesis that the self-concepts of low-self-esteem people are characterized by less clarity or certainty than those of high- Self-esteem (HSE) people, and the implications for understanding the pervasive impact of self-esteem on behavior are discussed.
Patterns of competence and adjustment among adolescents from authoritative, authoritarian, indulgent, and neglectful families.
TLDR
Adolescents whose parents are characterized as authoritarian score reasonably well on measures indexing obedience and conformity to the standards of adults but have relatively poorer self-conceptions than other youngsters, while adolescents from indulgent homes evidence a strong sense of self-confidence but report a higher frequency of substance abuse and school misconduct and are less engaged in school.
