  1. **p < 0.01
  2. SE, standard error of the mean
  3. In depression: mediating effect of resilience between authoritarian parenting style and depression
  4. y: authoritarian parenting style; m: resilience; x: depression
  5. Step 1: The dependent variable (depression) was regressed on the independent variables (authoritarian parenting style)
  6. Step 2: the hypothesized mediator (resilience) was regressed on the independent variables (authoritarian parenting style)
  7. Step 3: the dependent variable (depression) was regressed on both the independent variable (authoritarian parenting style) and mediators (resilience) in one equation
  8. In anxiety: mediating effect of resilience between authoritarian parenting style and anxiety
  9. y: authoritarian parenting style; m: resilience; x: anxiety
  10. Step 1: The dependent variable (anxiety) was regressed on the independent variables (authoritarian parenting style)
  11. Step 2: the hypothesized mediator (resilience) was regressed on the independent variables (authoritarian parenting style)
  12. Step 3: the dependent variable (anxiety) was regressed on both the independent variable (authoritarian parenting style) and mediators (resilience) in one equation
