The purpose of this study is to investigate the process by which parental and personal financial expectations and values influence young adults’ financial behaviors and, in turn, their financial well-being. Guided by Expectancy-Value Theory (Eccles & Wigfield, 2002), we hypothesize that after accounting for parental factors, personal expectations and values will positively predict financial behaviors and well-being. OLS hierarchical regression analyses estimated the relation of parental factors (values, expectations) and personal factors (values, expectations) to financial behavior (Model 1) and to financial well-being (Model 2), accounting for financial behavior. When predicting financial well-being, personal expectations are three times, and financial behavior is twice that of parental expectations. Interestingly, personal values are predictive only of financial behavior, demonstrating that perhaps values are transformed into behavior.
