FREITAS, Luna Maiana Araújo  and  ALVARENGA, Patrícia. Father-child interaction and externalizing behaviors in childhood. Psico (Porto Alegre) [online]. 2016, vol.47, n.4, pp. 279-287. ISSN 1980-8623.

This study evaluated the relation between the paternal social childrearing skills and the externalizing behaviors in childhood. Thirty-three fathers of children aged between six and nine years participated in this study. The fathers responded to the Interview Script of Parental Social Childrearing Skills (RE-HSE-P) and the Child Behavior Checklist 6-18 years (CBCL). The results revealed positive correlations between negative paternal practices and externalizing behaviors. The implications of negative practices for the development of externalizing behaviors are discussed. The importance of considering the mediating role of mother-child interaction on the relations between paternal practices and externalizing behaviors were also highlighted.
