Example text

As with gender, the significant differential effect of age in our study was limited to 1 when entered into our developing models of adjustment; the age by self-esteem (teacher’s report) interaction term significantly increased our ability to interpret and predict adjustment represented by the sociometric rating given to the child by his peers but this was accounted for by cultural differences in sociometric choices and has therefore been excluded from the model as it is impossible to specify what to attribute this to.

In our study, when the 12 adjustment models were compiled separately for boys and girls, the only significant differential effect of sex when all predictors were entered together, was for the child’s family satisfaction, even though the boys and girls did not differ significantly on that measure of adjustment. However, this was due to the mediating effect of self-esteem, previously discussed. We conclude from this that the differential effects of gender on adolescent adjustment are not direct, but mediated by their differential relationship to coping styles measured in this study, self-esteem and hostility.

44 MEASURES OF ADJUSTMENT Family adjustment It was expected that family adjustment of the child would show a pattern of correlates similar to that for academic adjustment, but not interpersonal adjustment—under the assumption that peer-group relations function independently of family and school relations. The expected similarities with academic adjustment correlates generally emerged, but not the expected differences with interpersonal adjustment correlates. Overall, family adjustment was significantly correlated with the child’s self-esteem, anxiety and hostility; younger children and children with better educated parents were more satisfied with their families; and parents were more satisfied with their child’s behaviour if the child had good marks.
