Abstract:

Using 2 questionnaires, we examined the relationship between family resource management styles and life adjustment among 271 low-income single mothers in China. The results indicated that there were significant differences in family resource management styles depending on the educational background of the single mothers and their reason for heading the family. The women also reported significant differences in life adjustment. The interaction effect of resource management styles and monthly income on life adjustment was significant. Specifically, resource management styles and educational background significantly predicted the women's life adjustment.
