Parenting style plays a significant role in adolescents’ development as well as their future orientation. More and more online and in person parent training programs have been developed in recent years. The current study aims to examine this relationship by using structural equation modeling. To explore the influence of parental control on adolescents’ future orientation as well as its underlying mechanism, a total of 1446 students were recruited. The common method deviation was verified by Harman’s single factor test. The correlation and descriptive statistics were analyzed via SPSS. The structural equation model was conducted to analyze the direct and indirect effects of parental control on adolescents’ future orientation via Mplus. Confidence intervals of the mediation effects of core self-evaluation and dispositional optimism were computed using bootstrap. Results of structural equation modeling show that parental psychological control negatively affects adolescents’ future orientation significantly. Core self-evaluation and dispositional optimism both plays a chain intermediary role between parental control and adolescents’ future orientation. The structural equation model of current study tested the effects of parental control on adolescents’ future orientation using empirical data, which further demonstrates the importance of family education. Parent education program would be benefited from incorporating factors of this model into their design.
