variables. After a brief correspondence with Jeynes to verify the construct of this
variable, the decision was made to replicate the study as closely as possible to the original
to provide the most accurate comparison to the original study. Theoretically, including a
variable which measures how well the parents know their children’s friends may serve to
provide some sense of overall parental involvement, even though the ideas of checking
up on children’s homework and helping with homework are much different than knowing
their children’s friends. Again, the replication will include this variable in the effort to
match the original study.
