Abstract:The focus of this study was to investigate the effects of emotional stability and family quality of life on well-being of college students. Data was collected in a campus classroom setting among N=202 adult undergraduate students with an age range of 18-54 years; 69 (34%) male and 133 (66%) female participants. The participants completed three instruments: Perceived Stress Scale (PSS-14) with 14 items, the Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (ERQ Scale) with 10 items, and the Family Quality of Life Scale (FQOL Scale) with 16 items. A One-Way ANOVA was used for data analysis that indicated participants with low social support, dissatisfied with life, and concerned financially scored lower in family interaction, parenting and emotional well-being. Participants who were concerned financially scored lower on reappraisal and higher on suppression.
