Parental Inconsistency: A Third Cross-Cultural Research on Parenting and Psychological Adjustment of Children
Dwairy, Marwan
Journal of Child and Family Studies, v19 n1 p23-29 Feb 2010
Inconsistency in parenting is a factor that may influence children's mental health. A questionnaire, measuring three parental inconsistencies (temporal, situational, and father-mother inconsistency) was administered to adolescents in nine countries to assess its association with adolescents' psychological disorders. The results show that parental inconsistency varies across cultures. Temporal inconsistency is not correlated with the other two inconsistencies. Temporal and father-mother inconsistencies, but not the situational inconsistency, were associated with adolescents' psychological disorders. The associations between parental inconsistency and psychological disorders differed across cultures.
