This study examined the relationship between high school students' self-reported levels of self-compassion and perceived parental involvement. Self-compassion is defined as the ability to be supportive and understanding towards oneself during instances of failures. Self-compassion is an important coping skill because of the likelihood that everyone will experience disappointments at some point in their life. The development of self-compassion my be associated with parenting behaviors such as parental involvement and over-parenting. Parental involvement refers to developmentally appropriate assistance in a child's life, while over-parenting refers to developmentally inappropriate assistance. The results from this study did not reveal a significant relationship between self-compassion and parental involvement. Limitations of this study, as well as suggestions for future research, are addressed.
