Abstract

In this study, 178 subjects responded to 6 vignettes which briefly described normal, egocentric and annoying behaviors of a preschool child, by selecting a preferred choice from among three responses that had been designed to match Baumrind's authoritative, permissive, or authoritarian parenting style categories. Parental responses appeared to vary with the child's behavior, as well as with the adult's sex, age, and experience in parenting.
