Sažetak
Studies have shown that higher hope is related to better outcomes in various domains of functioning (Snyder, 2002). The purpose of the present study was to compare high-hope children, in relation to their low-hope counterparts, on life satisfaction, self-esteem, social support and family cohesion. It was hypothesized that high-hope children would report higher self-esteem, overall life satisfaction, perceived social support and family cohesion than low-hope children. The sample consisted of 298 children who attended 5th to 8th grades. The mean age of children was 12.7 years. Children filled out the Brief Multidimensional Students Life Satisfaction Scale (Huebner, 1997), the Children’ s Hope Scale (Snyder et al., 1997), the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (Rosenberg 1965), the Bloom’ s cohesion subscale (1985) and the adapted version of the Cohen and Hoberman’ s Interpersonal Support Evaluation List (Brajša-Žganec, 1997). The results revealed no age or gender differences in hopeful thinking. Age was not related to self-esteem, perceived social support and family cohesion, but to life satisfaction. Overall life satisfaction, self-esteem and family cohesion did not differ as a function of gender. Girls reported higher perceived social support than boys. In line with the predictions of the hope theory, children with high hope were more satisfied with their lives and had higher self-esteem if compared to the low-hope group of children. Additionally, children with high hope, when compared to low-hope children, reported having greater support from others as well as greater family cohesion. The findings of this study suggest that higher hope is associated with higher levels of psychological well-being.
