Abstract:

This study used structural equation modeling to examine the relationships of family socioeconomic status (SES), parent-adolescent conflict, and filial piety to family functioning among middle school and high school students in mainland China. A total of 2,341 students (1,218 girls and 1,096 boys; mean age = 15.42) completed the Chinese Family Assessment Instrument, Family Status Survey, Parent-adolescent Conflict Scale, and Filial Piety Scale. The main results showed that: (a) family SES, parent-adolescent conflict, and filial piety were significantly linked to family functioning; (b) parent-adolescent conflict and filial piety contributed more to family functioning than family SES; (c) parent-adolescent conflict mediated the relationship between reciprocal filial piety and family functioning. The results promote understanding of family processes that influence the relationships between family SES, parent-adolescent conflict, filial piety, and family functioning among middle school and high school adolescents in mainland China.
