The Relationship between Marital Conflict and Children’s Social Adjustment
- This study is to examine the relation between marital conflict and children’s Asocial and Excluded behaviors as rated by teachers. The participants in this study were a group of 100 children and their mothers in Mandalay and Banmaw. To determine direct effects, marital conflict was assessed using a Myanmar version of the Revised Conflict Tactics Scales. Children’s social behaviors were measured by two subscales in the Social Behavior Scale. As a result, marital conflict was significantly positive correlated with children’s Asocial and Excluded behaviors in the classroom. In other words, marital conflict was significantly negative associated with children’s social adjustment.
