Abstract

Objective to explore the impact of self-efficacy and parents' personality traits on the family functioning in the students of First and Second grade. Method Four hundred parents randomly selected from 4 private primary schools in Tangxia, Dongguan were measured with General Self- Efficacy Scale (GSES), Big Five Aspect Scale(NEO-FFI) and Family Adapation and Cohension Scale, Second Edition-Chinese Version (FACESII-CV). Result Firstly, most students have a Intermediate family. There are significant differences between groups with high family functioning and groups with low family functioning in each dimension of NEO-FFI except openness and self-efficacy(P<0.001). Both neuroticism and conscientiousness play significant roles in predicting family cohension (P<0.001). The following four vaiables of neuroticism, conscientiousness, openness and general self-efficacy play significant roles in predicting family adaptability (P<0.001). Conclusion There is significant correlation between the results of family functioning and the self-efficacy, and personality traits of parents.
