ABSTRACT

By considering the roles of parenting efficacy and parenting stress, this research sought to understand how maternal mindfulness influences parent-adolescent relationships. Surveys on 307 mothers with children in middle and high school revealed several correlations. First, mindfulness in mothers, parent-child relationships, and parental efficacy all showed significant positive correlations with each other. Additionally, parenting stress and mindfulness in mothers, parent-child relationships, and parental efficacy each showed significant negative correlations. Interestingly, while high maternal mindfulness appeared to enhance parenting efficacy and reduce stress, only parenting stress, served as a mediator in the relationship between mindfulness and the parent-child bond. These findings underscore the importance of maternal mindfulness in fostering healthier parent-child dynamics.
