Perceived maternal psychological control and school adjustment in Chinese adolescents: Associations, mediations and moderations

Lu, Min (2016) Perceived maternal psychological control and school adjustment in Chinese adolescents: Associations, mediations and moderations. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This study aimed to examine the complicated process involved in the influence of parental psychological control on academic self-concept and academic performance in Chinese adolescents. The study considered possible mediating and moderating factors that might influence the relationships of interest. Findings of this study suggested that perceived maternal psychological control was related to adolescents' academic self-concept, and the relationship was mediated by adolescents' satisfaction on basic psychological needs. No statistically significant association was found between perceived maternal psychological control and adolescents' academic performance, instead, the relationship was moderated by adolescent age.
