The relationship between perceived social support, mother's attachment styles, and child-rearing related stress were investigated. Participants were mothers of kindergarteners (N =137). They completed the Adult Attachment the Scale, the Social Support Scale, and the Child-Rearing Related Stress Scale. The results of a path analysis indicated the following. (1) 'Secure' attachment had a positive effect on perceived social support. (2) 'Avoidant' attachment had an adverse effect on perceived social support. (3) Perceived social support had adverse effects on two child-rearing related stress factors. (4) 'Anxious/ambivalent' attachment had no effect on perceived social support but had direct positive effects on two child-rearing related stress factors. The implications of these results for the discussion on intergenerational transmission of attachment styles between children and mothers are discussed.
