Abstract: A structural model focusing on the spillover effect of parental job insecurity on money anxiety was developed and tested. The crossover effect of parental money anxiety on their childrena??s money anxiety, money motives and motivation to work was also examined. Data were collected from a sample of undergraduates and their parents. Results of structural equation modeling analyses supported a spillover effect of paternal job insecurity on paternal money anxiety. However, maternal job insecurity was not significantly associated with maternal money anxiety. Results also supported a crossover effect of parental money anxiety on youtha??s money anxiety. In turn, youtha??s money anxiety was significantly related to youtha??s negative money motives. Finally, youtha??s negative money motives were associated with their intrinsic motivation to work. Implications of our findings were discussed.
