Abstract

It was the purpose of this study to determine the differences in the attitudes regarding childrearing practices and family relationships held by parents whose children differed in curiosity level. The results of the investigation indicated that neither mothers nor fathers of high- and low-curiosity girls differed significantly in their attitudes in these areas. The findings did show, however, that both mothers and fathers of high- and low-curiosity boys differed significantly in some of these attitudes as measured by the Parental Attitude Research Instrument.
