The Background of the Study
In the stage of Adolescence, an individual is able develop his decision
making skills, at this stage he begin to think what career path he will take. This
affirmed the statement of Bandura (1968) that the social environment such as family,
friends, and relatives may affect the career choice of an individual. Similar to the idea
of Ryan (2000) that this is also the time where each individual makes useful decision
and ask themselves a question such as "what will be the career I will choose in the
future?" that is when person surrounding an individual contributes influence on
his/her life choices.
As an individual begin to explore in the outside world, they are able to think of
a profession that they want to achieve. However, according to Witko, (2006)
there are different factors affecting the work choice of high school students such as
their talent, field of interest, challenges they face and parental support. Similar to the
findings in the study of La (2009) that senior high school students revealed that
parents choose the strand for their children and Howard (2004) found out that peer
can be a factor too affirmed by the findings of Siew Chin, (2019) shows that there is
significant positive relationship between personality, parental and peer influences and
career choices.
Choosing a career is very crucial because this can be the starting point in
achieving the goals in life. The general purpose of this study is to find out if peer and
parents influence can affect and how it affects the career preference of the Senior
High School Students of San Isidro National High School when they enter college.

Zimbabwe. The investigation serves as a springboard to establishing a career guidance
model that would assist career guidance teachers in high schools in their endeavors to
help students make career choice from a well-informed perspective. A survey design
which was mainly quantitative in nature was used in this empirical study. A self-
thousand and ten high school students and 20 career guidance teachers participated in
the study. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 19 calculated the
percentages that were used to analyse the data. The study revealed that family
members, both nucleus and extended, had an influence on students’ choice of careers.

D. A Review of literature about Peer Influence
Edkin (2016) states that the years in which an individual attends college is a
unique time in one’s life, it’s a time to grow and become independent while working
through a pattern of behaviors in which are acceptable to the college environment.
The goal of this paper is to provide a review of the literature on the relationships
between gender differences, socialization and other factors that have been identified
in the existing studies of risk-taking behavior among college students and how peer
influence can play a massive role in conformity and/or deviance. Included are also
analyses of social norms and explanations of problematic behavior which can vary in
terms of definition.
One of the most researched and the path of this paper will follow is excessive
alcohol consumption. Alcohol consumption plagues college campuses and researchers
are trying to understand leading causes, which has led them to investigate how peer
influence affects individuals. The paper begins with an overview of measuring social
norms which can be a useful element in research to determine what factors are
responsible in individuals adopting risk-taking behaviors. Once norms are explained
socialization, peer influence, and gender differences will be examined and compared
with respect to the decision to engage in risky behaviors.
E.Parent Involvement and Children's Academic and Social Development
El Nokali (2010) Study of Early Childcare and Youth Development
considered 1364 respondents used to investigate children's trajectories of academic
and social development across first, third and fifth grade. Hierarchical linear modeling
was used to examine within- and between-child associations among maternal- and
teacher-reports of parent involvement and children's standardized achievement scores,
social skills, and problem behaviors. Findings suggest that within-child improvements
in parent involvement predict declines in problem behaviors and improvements in
social skills but do not predict changes in achievement. Between-child analyses
functioning and fewer behavior problems.

Mediating Role of Self-Regulation

greatly affect the behavior of their children based on their disciplining methods.

influence of parent and peer variables on delinquent behavior and explored whether
the relationships were mediated by adolescent self-regulation. Two hundred thirty-
eight third- and fourth-year Filipino high school students responded to measures of
parental induction and power-assertive discipline, parental nurturance, self-regulation,
peer delinquency, and self-reported delinquency, Correlation analysis indicated that
power-assertive discipline and peer delinquency were associated with higher levels of
delinquency and lower self-regulation.
Conversely, Inductive discipline and nurturance were associated with less
delinquent behavior.
B. Parental Involvement in the Philippines
Sometimes just because parents don’t want their children track the wrong path,
they tend to lead them. This affirmed the study of Bartolome (2017)Parental
involvement refers to the amount of participation a parent has when it comes to the
schooling of his/her children. Some schools foster healthy parental involvement, but
sometimes parents has hesitations if they will involve themselves with their children's
education. It has been advocated in Western countries. However, there is a body of
literature that examines the significance of social and cultural influences and the
effects of parents’ involvement in and expectations of their children’s development,
learning and career choices.

ANOVA were used to assess the significant differences on influences of peers on the
respondents’ study habits. Results revealed that there were significant differences in
the level of influence of peers in the study habits of students when classified as to age,
sex, civil status, ethnic affiliation and year level. Based on the results of the study, the

Moreover, teachers can also influence the study habits of the students; thus, teachers
should provide collaborative learning and use varied strategies in teaching.
