This research aims to explain the effect of family and community environment on the causal relationship between matrilineal parenting and adolescent characters.
This research employs a survey with a cross-sectional design. The population was mothers with adolescent children living in Padang City, Indonesia. The survey was distributed using Google Form, and the data were analyzed using Partial Least Square-Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM).
The analysis revealed five findings, as follows; (1) family environment had a significant positive influence on adolescent characters; (2) family environment had a positive influence on matrilineal parenting; (3) community environment did not have an influence on adolescent characters; (4) community environment matrilineal parenting; and (5) matrilineal parenting had a positive influence on adolescent characters.
Matrilineal parenting and the family environment greatly influenced the character buildings of adolescents. There are three matrilineal parenting components to provide guidance and direction to adolescents, namely mothers, fathers, and Mamak (mothers' siblings). When the matrilineal parenting style and family environment are considered good, adolescents will have a strong character not easily influenced by the other factors.
