Tiivistelmä

Our study examined the interrelations between the psychosocial
well-being of parents at the time of pregnancy and the social competence
of their three-year-old child. Whereas most previous studies have
linked the psychosocial well-being of one parent to the social
development of their child, newer research has highlighted the
importance of examining the psychosocial well-being of both parents and
its’ effects to the development of the child. This study used data from
the Steps to the Healthy Development and Well-being of Children
follow-up study (The STEPS Study, n = 1075) to examine the
interrelations between the psychosocial well-being of both the mother
and the father during the period of pregnancy and the social competence
of their three-year-old child. The interrelations between the
psychosocial well-being of one parent and the social competence of their
child were studied with regression analyses, and family-level
interrelations were modeled with a latent profile analysis of
family-level psychosocial well-being. At the dyadic level, the poorer
psychosocial well-being of one parent during the pregnancy period mostly
predicted poorer social competence in their child. However, at the
family level, these links were not statistically significant. The higher
level of psychosocial well-being experienced by one parent seemed to
protect the development of the social competence of their child. This
study emphasizes the need to consider the psychosocial well-being of
both parents as a factor that influences the social development of their
child.
