MARIN, Angela Helena et al. Transmission of childrearing practices between generations: empirical evidence. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.2, pp.123-132. ISSN 0102-3772.

This study investigated the transmission between generations of childrearing practices of 30 mothers and 22 fathers, whose first child was 3 years old. Participants were interviewed about childrearing practices they had themselves received from their parents and those they used with their children. Quantitative and content analyses were realized with childrearing practices categorized as inductive, coercive and non-interfering. Results showed continuity of received practices, whether they were inductive, coercive or non-interfering, as well as changes in the used practices due to characteristics of the couple or the child. Childrearing practices seem to comprise a dynamic process between parents and children, with a nonlinear transmission between generations, and affected by factors other than reproduction of learned patterns.

Palabras clave : childrearing practices; intergenerational patterns; family relations; parent-child relations.
