Abstract

Background
The current study examined the moderating role of horizontal collectivism in the relationship between authoritative parenting style and children’s problem-focused coping.

Hypotheses/Research Questions
It was hypothesized that horizontal collectivism serve as a moderator in the relationship between authoritative parenting style and children’s problem-focused coping.

Sample Characteristics and Sample Size
Participants were 340 children aged from 9 to 15 years (49.7% girls; Mage = 12.131, SD = 1.297).

Design
This is a cross-sectional study. Participants completed questionnaire measuring authoritative parenting style, horizontal collectivism, and children’s problem-focused coping.

Results
Results of moderated regression analysis showed that horizontal collectivism significantly moderated the relationship between authoritative parenting style and children’s problem-focused coping. Results of simple slope analyses showed that when horizontal collectivism was low, authoritative parenting style was positively associated with children’s problem-focused coping; when horizontal collectivism was high, the positive relationship between authoritative parenting style and children’s problem-focused coping was stronger.

Scientific Contribution
These findings suggest that horizontal collectivism may promote the positive effect of authoritative parenting style on children’s problem-focused coping, highlighting the importance of cultivating children’s horizontal collectivism in enriching their coping resources.
