Este trabajo analiza dos modelos (materno y paterno) en los que el afecto parental y los procedimientos de obtención del conocimiento parental moderaron la relación entre el conocimiento que los padres tenían sobre la vida de sus hijos adolescentes con el consumo de sustancias y la calidad de vida relacionada con la salud de éstos. La muestra estuvo compuesta por 15.942 adolescentes españoles que participaron en la edición 2006 del estudio Health Behavior in School-Aged Children. Los resultados mostraron que el conocimiento que los padres tenían sobre las vidas de sus hijos redujo su consumo de sustancias e incrementó su calidad de vida. Respecto a las relaciones de moderación, se encontró que tenían un efecto pequeño, aunque el afecto parental y los procedimientos de obtención del conocimiento parental utilizados por ambos progenitores, tuvieron efectos principales sobre las variables de consumo de sustancias y calidad de vida, siendo el afecto la variable más relevante en la calidad de vida relacionada conla salud, mientras que el conocimiento lo fue para el consumo de sustancias.
