Dear dr Muthen,

I have tested models for mediation. Because my individuals are children that are nested within families, I conducted my models with a multilevel structure. In the full model, in which I included the direct + the mediated pathways, my estimates for the x-->y and the m-->y pathways become larger. This is strange, because I think they should become smaller. Can you help me out?
