An Exploration of Nonresident Parents' Financial Provision and Children's Self-Esteem in a Chinese Context
Lau, Yuk-king
Journal of Family Social Work, v8 n4 p47-65 2004
This study examines the relationship between the making of financial provision by nonresident parents and children's self-esteem in a Chinese context. It is found that the relationship depends much on the dynamics of the nonresident parents' participation in other areas of family relationships, such as parental conflict. As this is an exploratory study with a small sample size, the results are suggestive rather than conclusive. The study contributes by indicating the possible cultural difference in the family dynamics of the post-divorce families in the Chinese context of Hong Kong and the West, and the need to take into account the perspectives of both the resident and nonresident parents in studying nonresident parents' post-divorce involvement. (Contains 5 tables and 1 figure.)
