Abstract

The present study aimed to examine the relationship of parents’ perfectionism with academic self-regulation and self-control among male high school students in Iranshahr. This descriptive study followed a correlational design. The statistical population included all third grade second period male high school students in Iranshahr and the sample included 140 individuals selected hierarchically among 235 individuals using Morgan’s table. To collect data, the Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (1990), the Ryan and Connell Academic Self-Regulation (1989), and the Weinberger and Schwartz Self-Restraint Scale (1990) were applied. The obtained data was analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient and stepwise regression analysis. The results indicated that parents’ perfectionism, parents’ expectations, and individual standards were significantly and negatively related to academic self-regulation. Among components of perfectionism, parents’ expectations explained 6% of the variance in academic self-regulation. Moreover, parents’ perfectionism and concerns about mistakes, parents’ expectations, and individual standards were significantly and negatively correlated with students’ self-regulation. When explaining self-control via components of parents’ perfectionism, in the first step, individual standards alone explained 19% of the variance in students’ self-control. In the second step, component of concerns about mistakes together with individual standards explained 27% of the variance in students’ academic self-regulation. Additionally, in the third step, component of parents’ expectations along with individual standards and concerns about mistakes explained 32% of the variance in students’ self-control.
