Boyes, Michael C.; Allen, Sandra G.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v39 n4 p551-70 Oct 1993
Examined whether adolescents of authoritative parents exhibit a greater preference for postconventional moral reasoning than do adolescents of permissive or authoritarian parents. Subjects (75 high school and 67 undergraduate students) completed Rest's Defining Issues Test and Schaefer's Child Report of Parental Behavior Inventory. Results indicated a clear relationship between parenting style and postconventional reasoning. (MM)
