A Comparison of Swedish and U.S. Fathers' Self-Reported Use of Parental Discipline.
Jutengren, Goran; Palmerus, Kerstin
Children & Society, v16 n4 p246-59 Sep 2002
Interviewed two samples (pairwise matched on sex and age of child and fathers' education) of fathers from Sweden and the United States about parental discipline with their 38- to 66-5month-olds. Found that, compared with U.S. fathers, Swedish fathers displayed a range of disciplining approaches from punitive reprimands to restrictive control approaches. Found no difference in fathers' tendency to assert compliance when their children misbehaved. (Author/KB)
