Objective: To test a whether a mother’s bonding with her own mother, and other maternal factors predict her perception of internalizing and externalizing behaviors of her child. Methods: Data for this cross-sectional study of 205 low-income single mothers with at least one child between 2 and 6, were from the baseline assessment of a longitudinal randomized controlled trial testing the efficacy of a cognitive-behavioral intervention in improving mothers' mental health. Outcomes included: Parental bonding, the mother’s assessment of child behavior, self-esteem, chronic stressors, and depressive symptoms. The child behavior subscales were standardized by age and gender prior to analysis. Multiple regression models were developed using a backward selection procedure, one for each measure of child behavior. Maternal sociodemographic characteristics were included as controls, and potential predictors included maternal bonding, self-esteem, chronic stressors and depressive symptoms. Findings: Chronic stressors (standardized beta = .25) and depressive symptoms (standardized beta = .34) predicted internalizing behavior. These predictors, plus control variables, explained 27% of the variability in internalizing behavior, F(7,182) = 9.8 and p Conclusions: Higher levels of maternal chronic stressors and depressive symptoms predicted greater internalizing and externalizing behavior problems. Mothers whose relationship with their own mother during childhood was more caring perceived a lower degree of externalizing behavior problems. Implications: Interventions aimed at decreasing depressive symptoms and chronic stressors may improve the relationship between mothers and their young children. This may foster a more caring bond between the mother and child, which may impact the future parenting skills of the child. Funded: Grant #R01 NR0506-01, NINR/NIH, 4/01/00-3/30/04.
