Abstract:The quality of mother’s accompany with children is more important than the quantity of time mother spent with children. Maternal mindsets and home raising environment play a crucial role in relations between maternal employment and children’s emotional and behavioral problems. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of maternal employment on 3 to 6-year-old Chinese children’s emotional and behavioral problems. With the use of questionnaires,a survey among children of 3~6 years old (n=429) in two kindergartens in Shenzhen and Guangzhou was conducted. Mothers were required to fill in the form of basic family information,Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire,Anxiety Mind –Set Scale and 0~6 Years Child Home Nurture Environment Questionnaire. Results indicated that:(1)Mother’s anxiety growth mindset protected children from more emotional and behavioral problems. Mother’s anxiety mindset moderated the relations between working/non -working mothers and children’s emotional and behavioral problems,whereas the protection effect of mother’s growth mindset on children’s problems weakened for working mothers. The active effects of non-working mother’s growth mindset on children’s emotional and behavioral problems and the passive effects of non -working mother’s fixed mindset were both greater than those of working mother’s.(2)Children benefited more from mothers who work part-time. Home raising environment fully mediated the relations between mothers working part -time/full -time and children’s emotional and behavioral problems. (3)Mother’s anxiety mindset positively predicted home raising environment. Government should encourage mothers to work part-time and supply more supports. Cultivating growth mindset is important to mothers,especially for non-working mothers who spend more time with children. Children of full-time working mothers can also benefit from mother’s growth mindset and improved home raising environment.
