This study examines the impact of parental characteristics, family attributes, and parent-child relationship (parent-child relational quality and parent child relational demands) on parental well-being (psychiatric morbidity, midlife crisis symptoms, positive mental health, and perceived health status) in 1501 Chinese parents. Results showed that amongst the various predictors under focus, parent-child relationship variables were found to have the strongest effects on parental well-being. Although both parent-child relational quality and parent-child relational demands were significantly related to different measures of well-being, parent-child relational quality was found to have stronger impact on parental well-being. The data also revealed that parent-child relationship variables were more predictive of parental well-being in mothers than in fathers.
