 Title: The Influence of Parental Warmth and Family Rearing Style on College Students’ Creativity Tendency: The Mediating Role of General Self-Efficacy

Abstract

Family is the first environment that affects people’s psychological development. In recent years, with people’s attention to education, more and more people began to pay attention to the impact of family upbringing on children’s physical and mental development. People also pay more attention to the impact of family upbringing on children’s creativity and general self-efficacy. The objective of this research is to explore the relationship between parents’ emotional warmth and college students’ creativity tendency, and to examine whether general self-efficacy plays a mediating role. There was a significant positive correlation between emotional warmth and creativity tendency at the level of 0.05. Emotional warmth was positively correlated with creativity tendency at the level of 0.01, and emotional warmth was positively correlated with general self-efficacy at the level of 0.01. There was a significant positive correlation between emotional warmth and general self-efficacy at the level of 0.01. General self-efficacy plays a complete intermediary role in parents’ emotional warm and college students’ creative tendency. In sum, parental affective warmth can affect college students’ creative tendency through general self-efficacy. In this study, there were certain regional restrictions in the selection of samples, and only subjects from Shanghai and Hebei Province were collected. To control the number of questions, most of them were from the simple version of the scale. Future research can improve the above two aspects. More in-depth research can be carried out from this perspective in the future.
