The Effect of Parental Treatment and Socio-Psychological Characteristics of Students on the Experience of their Own Academic Success

Jelena Mašnić


The phenomenon of the experience of success is important to study both in terms of the individual and in terms of the development of a community. Particularly, this experience is an important determinant of the value of personality and it has a strong influence on self-esteem. The feeling of success produces pleasure that motivates individuals to engage, which also contributes to the development of community and its stability. School experience is one of the first in which an individual measures his or her potentials and establishes a working identity. The experience of academic success of students is discussed through the impact of parental educational style and their socio-psychological characteristics. We make a distinction between parental educational style related to social support and treatment of punishment. Socio-psychological characteristics are observed as intervening variables (gender, class attendance, parent education, financial situation, modesty, anxiety). The survey was conducted as an empirical and non-experimental, using a sample of 800 students in primary and secondary schools of Montenegro. The obtained results indicate that there are significant differences in the perception of success when it comes to parental treatments, and the impact of personality traits is not negligible.
