ABSTRACT
Objectives Two goals of the studies have been formulated: to determine if there are differences in the declared life satisfaction and emotional intelligence between single and married mothers, and in the resilience of adolescent children. The second goal was to assess the relationships between life satisfaction and emotional intelligence of mothers and the resilience of their children, and to determine how emotional intelligence affects the relationship between life satisfaction of mothers and the resilience of adolescents in families of different structures. Material and methods A study on mothers (N = 84) and their adolescent children (N = 148), performed with SWLS, Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (INTE), and the SPP-18 Scale of Resilience. Results Has shown both considerable differences in life satisfaction and emotional intelligence among mothers from families of different structures, and in the resilience of their children. The results also show important connections between the mothers’ life satisfaction and the resilience of adolescents, regardless of the structure of the family; relationships between emotional intelligence and resilience were also revealed, however only in the families of single mothers. Conclusions In this study, emotional intelligence did not prove to be an important mediator in the relationship between the life satisfaction of mothers and the resilience of children.
