  1. Child gender and age, maternal and paternal education level, and maternal and paternal employment status were forced into the models before adding each of the CEBQ scales separately. Standardised β coefficients (p-values) were 0.033 (p = 0.715), 0.030 (p = 0.734), -0.021 (p = 0.852), -0.051 (p = 0.658), 0.122 (p = 0.190) and 0.029 (p = 0.752) for the control variables respectively.
