dc.description.abstractObjectives: Adolescent delinquency is an important issue, and of universal concern. Parental arrest history has beenrecognized to have negative impacts on children’s delinquent behavior. This study focused on the predictors of adolescentdelinquency, including parental influences and adolescents’own personal traits.en_US
dc.description.abstractMethods: We explored the relationship between parental arrest and children’s delinquency among 1027 Singaporean sec-ondary school students aged between 12 and 19 years (Mage=14.10). Specifically, we used hierarchical multiple regressionto examine the moderating effects that different dimensions of psychopathic traits, including narcissism, callous-unemotional(CU) traits, and impulsivity, have on the relation between parental arrest and adolescent delinquency.en_US
dc.description.abstractResults: Findings suggested that parental arrest significantly and positively predicted the delinquent behavior of their children. Although narcissism, CU traits, and impulsivity showed significant main effects on delinquency, only narcissism and CU traits, but not impulsivity, were found to significantly interact with parental arrest in predicting adolescent delinquency. With a high level of narcissism and CU traits, adolescents whose parents have had a prior arrest history were more likely to display higher levels of delinquent behavior.en_US
dc.description.abstractConclusions: These findings shed light on the importance of reducing adolescents’ narcissism and CU traits when developing prevention and intervention strategies to combat delinquency of adolescents with arrested parents in an Asian context.en_US
