Child Behavior toward Parent: An Inventory and Factor Analysis.
Schaefer, Earl S.; Finkelstein, Neal W.
Research on child influence upon parent behavior motivated the development of a Parent Report of Child Behavior Toward the Parent Inventory. Internal consistency reliabilities of 31 five-item scales ranged from .69 to .95 with a median of .88. Varimax rotation of three principal component factors yielded dimensions of Control, Acceptance versus Rejection, and Independence versus Dependence. Rotation of five factors differentiated the Acceptance scales into three factors labeled Affection, Considerateness and Helpfulness. Similar factors in children's perceptions of parent behavior are identified that will facilitate research on reciprocity in parent and child perceptions of parent-child interaction. (Author)
