Abstract
This study examines how parenting stress and depressive symptoms experienced by mothers and fathers influence their own (actor effects) and the partners (partner effects) parentchild communication. Based on the Actor-Partner Interdependence Model, data from 196 families were analyzed, with both parents rating their parenting stress and depressive feelings, and parents as well as children rating the open parentchild communication. Actor effects were found between parenting stress and open parentchild communication, whereas partner effects were prominent between depressive symptoms and open parentchild communication. The results provide no evidence for gender differences in the strength of the pathways to open parentchild communication. Our findings demonstrate the need to include both parents in studies on parentchild communication to enhance our understanding of the mutual influence among family members.
