ABSTRACT

This study was conducted to explore the structural relationships among neglectful parenting, rights-respecting school environment, self-esteem, and depressive mood, focusing on the mediating effect of rights-respecting school and self-esteem in the relationship between neglectful parenting and child’s depressive mood. The responses from 3,799 elementary school students (4th–6th grade), extracted from the 2016 Survey on the Rights of Children and Youth, were used for analysis. According to the findings, children with neglectful parenting were more likely to suffer from depressive mood. A rights-respecting school environment and self-esteem significantly mediated the pathway between neglectful parenting and depressive mood in children, and the sequential mediating effect was also significant. This finding contributes to promoting public attention to the importance of intervention against neglectful parenting. Further, the establishment of a rights-respecting school environment and self-esteem training was suggested to reduce the negative influence of child neglect.
