Socialization of Aggression in Low Income Rural Appalachian Children.
Taylor, June A.; And Others
A descriptive analysis of the socialization techniques and values for aggression of a sample of 188 parent sets from a southern Appalachia county was described. The parents were at a lower class occupation and income level. Data were collected by interviews in the home. The 57 separate items in the mother interview and the 40 items in the father interview covered the same child rearing variables. The major conclusion was that the sample parents did not approve of aggression toward parents but did tend to approve of aggression to peers. The techniques used to bring about these specific behaviors were generally punitive. On the rating of punitive techniques used for misbehavior, mothers scored higher than fathers on all counts. The implications of the findings from this as well as other pertinent studies in the literature were discussed. An 18-item bibliography and additional statistical information were presented.
