Parental Support for Their Children with or without Behavior Problems: An Exploratory Study.
Salomon, Anne
This exploratory study sought to identify: (1) parents' representations of children's need for support; (2) the nature and frequency of the support that parents believe they have given their child; and (3) the differences between the representations of parents whose child has behavior problems and those of parents of children without behavior problems. Twenty-seven parents of children ages 6 to 9 (10 children had behavior problems) responded to 2 questionnaires and a semi-structured interview. Findings indicated that parents in both groups reported having given support to their child in similar proportions. However, the parents of children without behavior problems believed, more so than parents of children with behavior problems, that children needed the parents' emotional support during difficult situations with peers or at home.
