Author(s):

Abstract:

This comprehensive literature review explores the profound impact of parental support on adolescents' emotional intelligence and self-esteem. Drawing from a wide array of empirical studies and theoretical frameworks, we synthesize research findings that underscore the critical role of supportive parental behaviors—including emotional availability, constructive feedback, and nurturing guidance—in fostering emotional intelligence among adolescents. The review highlights that such parental involvement not only enhances adolescents' ability to understand and manage their own emotions but also improves their social skills and resilience in the face of challenges. Additionally, the analysis reveals that consistent parental support significantly contributes to the development of a positive self-concept and robust self-esteem in adolescents, which are pivotal for their overall mental health and well-being. The synthesis of the literature indicates a reciprocal relationship between emotional intelligence and self-esteem, mediated by parental support. These findings suggest that interventions aimed at increasing parental engagement could be beneficial in promoting healthier emotional and psychological development in adolescents. Recommendations for future research include longitudinal studies to explore the long-term effects of parental support and investigations into the differential impacts of maternal and paternal support on adolescent outcomes.
