ABSTRACT

This study examined the contribution of paternal psychological control, father-child attachment, and their interaction to adult children‘s aggression with their emotion regulation as a mediator of those processes. A total of 156 college students completed a set of questionnaires assessing paternal psychological control, father-child attachment, children’s emotion regulation and aggression. Additionally, the Competitive Reaction Time to yield a behavioral index of aggression. Results indicated that paternal psychological control and father-child attachment each predicted aggression via their effects on emotion regulation, and the results remained significant even after controlling for the effects of maternal psychological control and mother-child attachment. However, father-child attachment did not moderate the relationship between paternal psychological control and children’s emotion regulation and aggression. Implications and limitations of this study are discussed.
