This study examined the relationship between parents’ and children’s anxiety and the mediation effects of parents’ overprotection and children’s cognitive distortions.
The participants were 414 children in fourth, fifth, and sixth grade in elementary schools and their parents. Structural equation modeling was used to analyze the data.
First, children’s cognitive distortions and parents’ overprotection were found to directly affect the children’s anxiety. Parents’ overprotection also affected the children’s anxiety and was mediated by cognitive distortions. However, only the mother’s anxiety significantly predicted a child’s anxiety.
Findings suggest that there is an intergenerational transmission of anxiety, and early intervention and prevention approaches may be helpful.
Key Words: anxiety, overprotection, cognitive distortion, bias, anxiety control beliefs
