OBJECTIVES: To explore the influence of health risk on support for physical activity in parents of boys and parents of girls.
METHODS: The influence of parent BMI, physical activity, smoking, and fruit and vegetable consumption was explored in child gender-specific hierarchical linear regression models.
RESULTS: Positive predictors of support included physical activity in parents of boys and parents of girls. In parents of girls, child BMI and parent BMI were also significant.
CONCLUSION: Higher BMI in parents of girls and higher BMI in girls predicted higher levels of parental supportive behavior.
