The Impact of Differential Parenting: A Longitudinal Study of Child and Parent Factors on Children's Psychosocial Health in Hong Kong

Project: Research project

Project Details


The overall aim of this study is to examine the impact of PDT on adolescent psychosocial well-being and test adolescents’ perception of fairness as a mediation mechanism. We will further explore whether the mediated pathway via adolescent perception of fairness may be moderated by parental empathy, adolescent empathy and adolescent personality. Effects on adolescents’ psychosocial adjustment will be investigated as assessed by measures of self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and trust in relationships with parents.
