Effects of Parental Attachment Style and Parental Expectations on Family Conflict in Families with Adolescents

caution since the independent variables are correlated not only with the dependant variable but
also with each other. Though colinearity between variables was somewhat high, regression is
robust enough to withstand the violation of this assumption.
The question of adolescent perceptions of maternal and paternal attachment as related to
family conflict was considered separately, using the parental bonding instrument items.
Correlations were obtained to assess the degree of relationship between perception of maternal
and paternal care and overprotection with family conflict. Results for mothers showed a high
correlation for perception of maternal caring (N = 51, r = .55, p <. 01) and current family conflict
and a moderately small inverse correlation for perceptions of maternal overprotection (N = 50, r
= -.27, p = .05) and current family conflict. For fathers, results were similar with the correlation
indicating a large correlation between perception of paternal caring and current family conflict
(N = 51, r = .64, p < .01) and a moderately large inverse correlation between perception of
paternal overprotection and current family conflict (N = 52, r = -.49, p < .01) .
Results of the separate standard multiple regressions performed for maternal caring and
overprotection (R = .55, F (2,47) = 10.37, p < .01) and for paternal caring and overprotection (R
= .65, F (2,47) = 17.21, p < .01) both yielded significant regression equations. The results
indicate perception of maternal caring (
β
= .62, t
(46)
= 3.99, p < .01) is a significant predictor of
the criterion family conflict, with perceptions of overprotection not contributing significantly (
β
= .12, t
(46)
= .78, p = .44) to the model. Perception of maternal caring predicts a substantial
amount of variability for current family conflict and suggests its importance in family
relationships. Colinearity between variables was slightly high but, again, regression is robust
enough to withstand these results.
