Abstract:Molecular family stability can be defined as the predictability and consistency of the daily activities and routines of the family, including activities in the home as well as activities occurring outside the home that are arranged and supported by the family. Previous research has demonstrated a relationship between the constructs of molecular family stability and child adjustment, with greater family stability associated with better child adjustment. The current study evaluates several control-related constructs as potential mechanisms through which the relationship between family stability and child adjustment may operate. Self-control and aspects of perceived control were assessed as possible mediators of this relationship. The specific aspects of perceived control included were perceived primary, secondary, and anxiety control. It was hypothesized that self-control and perceived control would mediate the relationship between family stability and child adjustment. Participants were 67 children in grades 3 through 8 and their parents. Children and parents were each asked to complete measures of family stability, self-control, perceived control, and adjustment. Multiple regression analyses were used to evaluate the hypothesized mediational model. Results generally support the hypotheses that self-control and perceived primary control mediate the relationship between molecular family stability and adjustment; however, the hypotheses that perceived secondary and anxiety control mediate the relationship between family stability and adjustment were not supported. Additionally, evidence emerged suggesting a suppression situation in which perceived primary control, child age, and family income appear to serve as suppressors revealing a significant and positive relationship between child-reported molecular family stability and one particular aspect of adjustment, anxiety symptoms. Results are discussed in terms of avenues for further research and potential clinical applications of the construct of molecular family stability.
