71 respondents who had lived in Germany and in the United States filled out a 63-item questionnaire comparing child-rearing practices in the 2 cultures. The results indicated that German parents are more controlling in such areas as toilet training, table manners, and school and homework; and, in general, they punish more severely. The American parent was found to exercise more control with regard to personal hygiene, sex behavior, sports, and church and youth organizations.
