To examine concurrent associations between maternal insomnia and different aspects of the family socialization environment.Mothers reported on their symptoms of insomnia in a private standardized interview and interviewers evaluated the family socialization environment using the Coder's Inventory.Assessments were conducted in participants' homes within the U.K.One thousand one hundred sixteen mothers of British children enrolled in the Environmental Risk (E-Risk) study were invited to participate when their children were aged 12 years.N/A.After controlling for family socioeconomic status (SES), mothers' relationship status, and maternal depression, maternal insomnia was associated with a poorer family socialization environment (β = -0.10, [95% confidence intervals (CI) = -0.16, -0.04], P < 0.001). When family socialization environment subscales were examined, after controlling for family SES, mothers' relationship status, and maternal depression, maternal insomnia was associated with greater chaos (β = 0.09, [95% CI = 0.03, 0.15], P = 0.002), greater child neglect (β = 0.13, [95% CI = 0.07, 0.18], P < 0.001), less happiness (β = -0.13, [95% CI = -0.18, -0.07], P < 0.001), less child stimulation (β = -0.06, [95% CI = -0.11, 0.00], P = 0.043), but not poorer state of the home, such as orderliness (β = -0.04, [95% CI = -0.10, 0.02], P = 0.182).Maternal insomnia is associated with the family socialization environment. This finding emphasizes the need to consider insomnia in the family context.
