The Relationship between Family’s Social Economic Status and Psychological Suzhi of Middle School Students: The Intermediary Effect of Parenting Style
ABSTRACT
This research focused on the relationship among family’s social economic status (SES), parenting and psychological suzhi of middle school students. The results indicated that SES has significant positive correlation with middle school students’ psychological suzhi; parenting significantly predicts psychological suzhi of middle school students; among them, mother’s emotional warmth and father’s emotional warmth significantly positively predict psychological suzhi; mother’s rejection and father’s over protection significantly negatively predict psychological suzhi. SES not only has independent prediction effect on middle school students’ psychological suzhi, but also positively predicts psychological suzhi through father’s emotional warmth and mother’s emotional warmth by intermediary role.
